The Patient Safety Movement confronts a variety of causes with actionable ideas and innovations to transform the process of care by dramatically improving patient safety and eliminating preventable patient deaths.
Every year the Patient Safety Movement Foundation identifies the most influential advocates in patient safety and honors them with the Humanitarian Award at the annual Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit. This award recognizes leaders who have made significant progress in eliminating preventable patient deaths so that we can reach our shared goal of zero by 2020. Congratulations to the 2013 winners!
