Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy Promotes Healthcare Equality with Dynamic Symposium April 2019
Equality and justice in the delivery of health care took a step forward on Friday, April 12, 2019 as Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy presented the latest in its series of annual symposia. Each year Pulse symposium has a theme, and this year it was Patient Safety and Health Equity in Vulnerable Patient Populations. With major support from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Family First Home Companions as well as other sponsors, the event focused on groups of people who often face challenges in getting the quality of health care the rest of us take for granted: patients with Limited English Proficiency (LEP), people living with Alzheimer’s or dementia, and members of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer / Questioning (LGBTQ) communities.
