“COVID-19 has exposed the safety gaps in our healthcare system that already cause 200,000 deaths a year. Ensuring better patient and health worker outcomes couldn’t be more important than it is in 2020,” Carlisle said. “The Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s ‘Unite For Safe Care’ Virtual Event is putting an important spotlight on the crisis and I’m proud to be involved.”
Unite For Safe Care is a three-hour virtual event connecting patients, health workers, policymakers, celebrities, and global citizens uniting together to learn how patient and health worker safety can be advanced. This event will include memorials and tributes to honor loved ones no longer with us due to medical harm and a celebration of the patients who have survived medical harm. The program will recognize the frontline workers who are committed to make health care safe.
In June, the Patient Safety Movement Foundation announced the wide-ranging campaign to bring attention to system-wide improvements that will ensure better health worker and patient safety outcomes, called #uniteforsafecare. The event will also be joined by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), The Leapfrog Group and International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) in co-convening the slate of programming.
