From both human and financial perspectives, the cost of preventable patient death is staggering:
But, as with any challenge of this magnitude, the opportunity to achieve positive change is equally vast.
The Patient Safety Movement is a “big tent” organization that invites the contributions of the broadest spectrum of policy professionals: patient advocates, public officials, public health professionals, and healthcare reformers. The Patient Safety Movement welcomes you all to the fight.
We invite you to review our Challenges & Solutions–– and then contribute your own expertise to the identification of new challenges and the formulation of additional solutions.
Although it’s a painful experience, we encourage you to read our Patient Stories. If you need any additional evidence that preventable death is a major public health issue, you’ll find it there.
Finally, we invite you to attend the World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit. Attending the Summit, which has emerged as the preeminent patient safety conference in the nation, is an excellent way for you to get immersed––quickly and deeply––in the Movement. You are sure to come away with new policy directions to explore.
