Engaged Patients is a project that promotes patient education and health care safety. We are dedicated to supporting patient engagement and to reducing health care issues that result in miscommunication, medical errors and adverse events.
We educate members of the public, family members, caregivers and advocates on patient safety issues.
Patients have an important role to play in improving healthcare safety and quality. Engaged Patients provides consumers and patient advocates a clear understanding of the importance of forming interactive partnerships with providers and gives them the tools and resources they need to become capable and confident members of their health care teams.
