Dear colleagues and friends:


This next year, the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF)is highlighting
the topic of Diagnostic Error for Patient Safety Awareness Week (PSAW, March
2 - 8, 2014).   Hospitals, clinics, and healthcare organizations nationwide

participate in PSAW activities, and this will be a unique opportunity to
raise awareness about Diagnostic Error among a wide range of patients,
healthcare leaders and staff.


To quote the NPSF:  'Patient Safety Awareness Week is held annually and is
intended to raise awareness, promote the engagement of patients, families,
and health care providers, and encourage a sustainable and conscientious
collaboration between all parties. The week is intended to imprint an
indelible statement that efforts to improve patient safety must be
collaborative and that we must never be satisfied with the status quo.'


Our Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine is delighted to support this in
any ways we can:


If you would like to be included on a list of speakers for PSAW, please fill
out a short form:


If you would like to join a small workgroup to develop and evaluate
education materials and resources for PSAW, please contact me at

prefer:  Patients, Providers, or Healthcare Organizations.


Thanks in advance for your interest and participation.
