Transforming Care at the Bedside (TCAB) is a national initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) in partnership with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). The program is designed to improve inpatient care and the hospital work environment by empowering front-line nursing staff. In this article we provide an assessment of the overall effect of TCAB, focusing on the experiences of the 10 hospitals that continued through phase 3 of the initiative.
