    Word from Executive Director, Becky

    We are excited about our 10th year as a part of the solution to address the multitude of issues surrounding patient safety. Safety culture is the KEY! Medical error prevention and reduced patient harm occurs in organizations with a strong safety culture, supporting and encouraging the reporting of adverse events, near misses and unsafe conditions; reporting that leads to learning what and why errors occur and to sharing of solutions.
