What We Do

Develop and Disseminate Patient Safety Education

Educating everyone to advance patient safety

Making healthcare safer for all

We create and share actionable patient safety education for everyone in the world involved in making healthcare safer, including governing bodies, healthcare professionals, students, patients, families, and the public through our free Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS™) and events.


Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS)

Our Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS) were first developed in 2012 and are continually revised every year since. The APSS are evidence-based best practice summaries to facilitate performance improvement around a number of leading patient safety topics that result in harm and death. To date we’ve published over 18 topics and 50+ solutions to leading patient safety challenges facing hospitals and healthcare organizations across the world.
