FDA posts summary of March workshop on "Safe Medical Treatments: Everyone Has a Role."

In late March, the FDA co-sponsored with the National Patient Safety Foundation a workshop for consumer and patient organizations (including NCPIE) to promote more direct patient involvement in their own medical care. NCPIE’s emphasis on consumers' role on their “Medicine Education Team” fits perfectly with the workshop message.
