Health care professionals and consumers alike are the focus as the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF) leads Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 4-10, 2012. This year’s theme, Be Aware for Safe Care, calls for all parties in the health care equation to be aware of ongoing efforts to improve patient safety and how they can take part in advancing them.
Since 2002, NPSF has led health care organizations around the world in recognizing Patient Safety Awareness Week, a campaign for education and consciousness-raising to improve patient safety at the local level. You can view a video
with a powerful message concerning patient safety.
