The theme of Patient Safety Awareness Week 2015 was “United in Safety.” Everyone in the health care process plays a role in delivering safe care. By uniting together in 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 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.
