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

In the spirit of recognizing that #WeAreAllPatients:

Learn More, Do More

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
