Patients deserve safe care in and across every setting. As part of Patient Safety Awareness Week, this free webcast will call attention to the safety issues beyond the walls of the hospitals.

While patient safety improvement efforts have historically focused on inpatient settings, less work has been directed toward ambulatory care settings, even though most care is provided in these settings. In the US roughly one billion ambulatory visits occur annually, compared to 35 million hospital admissions. Existing research shows that serious safety risks are present in ambulatory settings exist.

As health care consolidation continues and organizations move to a greater focus on system-based care and increasingly complex care is being provided outside of hospitals and in patients' homes, now is the time to consider how to advance patient safety in ambulatory settings and across the entire care continuum.
