Coming March 6-12, 2011: Patient Safety Awareness Week

In an effort to encourage and strengthen collaboration between patients, families and healthcare providers, the National Patient Safety Foundation sponsors Patient Safety Awareness Week each year. This year’s campaign, “Are you In? Commit to Safe Health Care,” will take place March 6-12, 2011, highlighting the need for healthcare participants – from patient to provider – to be informed, involved and invested in making health care safe Patient Safety Awareness Week (PSAW) is an annual, NPSF-led education and awareness campaign for healthcare safety. This year, for the first time since the observance campaign was launched in 2002, NPSF is extending the availability of the toolkits to all healthcare organizations – not just members of its hospital program.
