National Patient Safety Awareness Week activities — learning and limericks!
National Patient Safety Awareness Week is March 2-8, 2014. This year’s theme is “Navigate Your Health….Safely” and highlights the need for patients and consumers to become more engaged in the health care process. Safe patient care can best be achieved when patients are key members of the team and are encouraged to take an active role in their care.
