This week is organized by the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF) to increase awareness on patient safety issues. The goal is to educate and engage healthcare professionals and the general public through web events, social media, educational programs, and materials.
In an effort to expand your staff’s participation and excitement for the special week, I would like to make you aware of an important article from PSQH and our sister publication Patient Safety Monitor Journal – Plan Staff Activities for National Patient Safety Awareness Week. This article highlights some of the special events to take advantage of, as well as ways to engage your staff for the event!
“It is a very popular event, because it is a chance for learning, improving, but also having fun,” says Sara Valentin, NPSF assistant vice president of event management and strategy. Read the article now and get ready to motivate your team!
I hope that you find the article helpful. Happy Patient Safety Week!
