The Current Landscape of Patient Safety: Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Going 

Since the release of the Institute of Medicine’s report, "To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System," safe medical care became a priority. Pulse CPSEA, even before that, worked to improve patient outcomes.

This involved:

  • Encouraging people to be better prepared as patients and advocates

  • Understanding how medical errors occurred and helping avoid them

  • Recognizing how patient and family engagement could prevent unplanned outcomes of care.

TakeCHARGE 5 Steps to Safer Health Care: Communication is Key

Pulse's 2022 Symposium kicked off the third year of the TakeCHARGE Campaign: 5 Steps to Safer Health Care.  By attending, participants:

  • Heard from industry-leading professionals.

  • Learned about new safety tools.

  • Participated in educational opportunities to help achieve their unique personal and professional goals.

Annual Spring Syposium

Patient Safety and Health Equity in Vulnerable Populations

Equality and justice in the delivery of health care took a step forward in 2019, as Pulse CPSEA presented the latest in its series of annual symposia. The event focused on groups of people who often faced 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

  • Members of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) communities.

This gathering marked the initiation of a distinctive experiment in Patient Safety education on Long Island. Delegates from various nonprofit organizations across Long Island came together, collaborating with four subject matter experts in Patient Safety. Their objective was to learn, exchange experiences, and devise strategies to enhance awareness of Patient Safety issues within their respective communities. This event set the stage for proactive efforts to improve Patient Safety education.
