Patient Safety America – Newsletter

Patient Safety America

is an organization dedicated to educating patients and their care providers about new developments in patient safety. Through monthly newsletters, we use expert opinions, book reviews, and peer-reviewed studies published in major medical journals to increase awareness and knowledge about safe care. In general we focus on the following:

  • Genuine informed consent and patient-centered care
  • Mitigation of diagnostic errors
  • Inappropriate prescribing of drugs
  • Inadequate regulation of drugs and devices
  • Lack of transparency in the medical industry
  • Patient involvement at all levels of healthcare from policy to person
  • Replacing the fee-for-service system
  • Improving the care environment for nurses and physicians
  • Grossly inequitable access to quality care
