What Patients Can Do to Prevent Medical Errors

We encourage patients and their families to participate in their healthcare to help prevent medical errors. We produce Safety Tips for Patients, based upon real-life events happening in Pennsylvania's healthcare facilities. Use these tips to stay informed and as guidance to actively engage in your healthcare.

Patient Voice Council Information

‚ÄčThe Patient Safety Authority understands that patients are important members of the healthcare team and we want to include your perspective in our efforts to keep patients safe. We are looking for patients who are willing to share their input on projects and articles that we develop.

Some projects may be long term, with meetings and conference calls spread over the course of several months or years. Other projects will be one time reviews that can be completed in a couple of hours. All participation is valuable, and you can choose your level of commitment.

This form will help us to best match your interests and expertise to the opportunities

for participation. There are no requirements for participation other than an interest in helping improve patient safety.

Thank you for your interest. If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Bell, Director of Outreach and Education or call 610-906-5678.
