Missouri Center for Patient Safety Takes its Mission Nationwide as the Center for Patient Safety

The Missouri Center for Patient Safety is pleased to announce our launch of the Center for Patient Safety.   The Center for Patient Safety continues to fulfill the vision and mission of the Missouri Center for Patient Safety while reinforcing and expanding on our work that has historically and will continue to cross the Missouri borders.

An upcoming press release will announce this exciting change!   We hope that you will join us in celebrating the next phase of this important work as we reinforce and expand our PSO, culture, education and other resources and services nationally.  While we have historically worked outside the state border lines – as the Center for Patient Safety we give a clearer message about our work as a private organization with a broad-ranging mission.

Additionally, if you haven’t yet done so, join us on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.

It truly takes a broad community of dedicated individuals and organizations to continuously push toward improving the quality and safety of care and eliminating patient harm.   We hope you will continue to join us in this crusade!
