The #uniteforsafecare campaign was founded by the Patient Safety Movement Foundation but wouldn’t be possible without the support and volunteerism of hundreds of people across the globe.
In January of 2019, about two dozen patient safety advocates gathered in Huntington Beach, California (as pictured to the right) to discuss how to move the needle from the patient and family perspective. One of those ideas was a March for Patient Safety. A small group of volunteers took that idea and forming a steering committee to start researching what it would take to organize such an event.
We hope to “March” in 2021, this year we believe that raising public awareness is our first step to organizing a successful March in the future. That group of patients, family members, clinicians, administrators, and members of the media have made this a reality.
