Patient Safety Awareness Week is an annual education and awareness campaign for health care safety led by NPSF. Each year, health care organizations around the globe take part in the event by prominently displaying the NPSF campaign logo and promotional materials within their organizations, creating awareness in the community, and utilizing NPSF educational resources among hospital staff and patients.
The theme for 2015 is “United in Safety.” Everyone in the health care process plays a role in delivering safe care and by uniting together and sharing that common goal, we can make a difference in patient safety. From patients to care providers, from the front lines to the executive suite, from the patient and family advocate to the corporate solutions provider — we are all united in the goal of keeping patients and those who care for them free from harm. The underlining focus of this campaign is patient engagement and emphasizes the importance of the relationship between providers and patients and their families. Enhanced communication begins with an informed and engaged patient and helps to lead to safer care.

For Patient Safety Awareness Week 2015, NPSF has teamed up with expert organizations in the field to develop and disseminate educational materials for clinicians, health systems, and patients and consumers specifically related to better understand how patients and providers can enhance communication, which can increase engagement.

A list of resources and tools will be available for download soon.
