The United in Patient Safety campaign culminates each year with Patient Safety Awareness Week, designed to mark a dedicated time and a platform to increase awareness about patient safety among health professionals and the public. This year, patient safety week is March 11-17, 2018.
One goal of the week is to bring together and engage health care professionals and patients to help spread this important message.
There are a number of ways to get involved in Patient Safety Awareness Week.
