While quality improvement projects can result in short-term, local success, ensuring the sustainability and spread of successful interventions can be extremely challenging. This follow-up study describes methods used to disseminate a successful project to reduce medication administration errors beyond the original pilot hospitals. The article details how stratiegies for communication, local adaptation, teamwork, and learning from failure were essential to implementing the intervention across a broad range of hospitals. This approach achieved sustained improvement in medication administration error rates in both the initial and subsequent groups of hospitals.
