Episode 24 features two members of the executive team at Center for Patient Safety, a Primaris affiliate. Alex Christgen, CPS executive director, and Lee Varner, EMS program director, discuss Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 11-17, as well as the upcoming Patient Safety Forum on March 14 in St. Louis.
Patient Safety Awareness Week (PSAW), an initiative from the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, is designed to raise patient safety awareness among healthcare providers and consumers. Christgen says this is a great time to celebrate successes and re-focus on patient safety opportunities in your organization.
