Day Five of Patient Safety Awareness Week. Ask and Engage.

In the spirit of recognizing that #WeAreAllPatients:

Learn More, Do More

Fact: Growing research shows that patients who are more involved with their care have better experiences in the health care system and, often, better outcomes. Patients and family members can play a role in preventing avoidable harm.

Action you can take: Commit to asking your health care provider three questions at your next visit using Ask Me 3®

Resources to learn more: Ask Me 3 video for patients, materials for clinicians
