Patient Safety Awareness Week
This week marks the 15th annual Patient Safety Awareness Week, an initiative started by the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF). Patient Safety Awareness Week is time dedicated to raising awareness about patient safety among health care professionals and the public.
This year NPSF issued a Call to Action: Preventable Health Care Harm is a Public Health Crisis and Patient Safety Requires a Coordinated Public Health Response. This call to action highlights how a public health approach lead to advances in patient safety and creates a framework to reduce preventable harm to patients.
