What does it Mean to Make a Commitment?

We don’t ask for a financial contribution to join our Movement because we are looking for organizations to Take Action! We ask that you recognize the severity of the challenges facing your organization today and make a Commitment to solving the issues at hand by eagerly contributing to enduring solutions.

Rather than directly implementing projects, the Patient Safety Movement facilitates action by helping committed organizations connect, collaborate and make effective and measurable Commitments to Action. A commitment expedites action through accountability and shared learning.

Specifically, we ask you to implement at least one of the Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS), developed collaboratively by the Patient Safety Movement and other healthcare leaders, or develop your own commitment to a different challenge. New commitments are highlighted at our annual Summit and organizations that make a commitment are offered special access and savings at the event.

Proactive healthcare organizations dedicated to improving patient safety at their institutions set the stage for action at our annual Summits by establishing their own Commitments. Below are their actionable commitments to reduce preventable patient harm and death within their own organizations.
