The Movement is not just about information, it is about action! By addressing new challenges and forming Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS) we believe we can reduce the number of preventable deaths in hospitals to ZERO by 2020.

Below you will find links to the 13 solutions to overcome some of the leading patient safety challenges facing hospitals today. Please take the time to download and share these APSS with your colleagues. If you haven’t made a commitment to implement these solutions, please make a commitment today.
