Pulse's monthly meetings offer valuable opportunities to stay informed and engaged with the world of patient advocacy. These gatherings are for individuals from all backgrounds — caregivers, patient advocates or just users of the healthcare system. Access the latest insights, exchange ideas, and learn from the experiences of others.
At Pulse, we define “advocate” broadly, as including not only professional patient advocates, but anyone who assists and supports a person receiving medical care.

The TakeCHARGE Campaign, an annual initiative by the Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy, promotes patient safety through the 5 Steps to Safer Health Care. Kicking off during Patient Safety Awareness Week in March and ending on International Patient Safety Day on September 17th, the campaign focuses on one step each month. These steps include understanding advance directives, keeping medical records, preparing for doctor visits, preventing infections, and using an advocate.
