PATIENT SAFETY ADVISORY COUNCIL (PSAC)
PSAC works with community-based groups who are committed to incorporating patient safety and health literacy programs into their organization.
PROFESSIONALS FOR PATIENT SAFETY (PPS)
PPS are professionals who have or had direct contact with patients or their family members and meet monthly to discuss patient safety issues and concerns.
PULSE was founded in 1996 to empower patients and their families to be an active part of their healthcare team. Research shows that involved and informed patients have better outcomes. Medical errors cost the economy as much as $29 billion a year.
PULSE uses the stories and experiences of patients and their families, as well as information and research distributed by patient safety organizations, to educate and advocate for safe care.
PULSE workshops and community programs were developed with national and local leaders in patient safety. Participants often share health care experiences which PULSE uses to find solutions and make improvements. 89% of the people who were surveyed following PULSE programs reported that they will change their behavior because of what they learned.
To help support this ongoing work, consider making PULSE one of your charities of choice this year.
