Accessing the Patientsafety-L List Archives 0 A. Spielman Greetings, patient safety forum readers! As a reminder, the old Listserv list (Patientsafety-L) hosted by NPSF has been retired as of December 31, 2014, and is no longer available for posting and receiving messages. Please continue to post all new discussions here in the online forum, which takes the place of the Listserv list.   Many of you have asked about our plans for preserving the archive of messages from the past Listserv list, and we are pleased to let you know that NPSF will continue to provide online access to the complete archive of messages. To view the archive, go to   Please note that although the archive has been set up with an online interface virtually identical to the one for the former list, this is a static archive only. Therefore, it will not be possible to subscribe to this list, to use it to post and receive new messages, or to post new replies to messages in the archive. However, it will be possible to read, search, and hyperlink to messages in the archive, just as with the previous list.      Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the archive.

Subscribing to Forum Topics and Individual Posts Locked Topic 0 M. Alpert   You have two options when subscribing to Forums - Receive a notification when a new Topic or "Thread" is posted anywhere in the Forum Category Subscribe to posts within individual Topics or "Threads"   Here's how it works -   From the Forum Home or "Index" page you'll see a listing of Categories and Topics. Think of a Category as an organizational folder, and a Topic as an individual file or subject. Category - GENERAL PATIENT SAFETY TOPICS Topic - General Patient Safety Discussion        Click on the Forum - General Patient Safety Discussion You'll see a list of all Forum Subjects such as - How to Create a Post At the top of the page click on Thread Actions and select Subscribe to Instant Updates You'll now be notified of any new TOPICS posted under the General Patient Safety Discussion. For example, if a new Topic is posted titled "Patient Safety in the 21st Century", you would receive a notification of this new Topic.   Since you subscribed to Instant Updates from the Main General Patient Safety Discussion page, you'll only receive notifications when a new TOPIC is posted - not when additional posts are made within that topic. For example, if someone posts a reply to the new Topic "Patient Safety in the 21st Century" you won't be notified. That's because you subscribed to notifications of new Topics, not posts within Topics.              To subscribe to posts within an individual Topic,  Click on the Topic that interest you, such as How to Create a Post At the top of the page click on Thread Actions and select Subscribe to Instant Updates You will now receive notifications when a new post is made to the TOPIC, How to Create a Post        How should you setup your own forum notifications? Subscribe to receive new Topic notifications for your primary areas of interest When you receive notification of a particular post that interests you, then subscribe to that Thread Subscribe to Topics that you've created or replied to
