About Professionals for Patient Safety
Professionals for Patient Safety are members of the health care workforce (current or retired), patient advocates,
people who care for others as caregivers and all community members who have experience with the health care system
who want to empower patients and their families to navigate the healthcare system for safe, quality care.
Are you tired of waiting for conferences that happen only a few times a year, cost thousands of dollars in admission and travel and cover topics that may not be helpful in the “real” world of patient safety? Then, you have to figure out how to educate others or implement what you have learned to make it work while working in the healthcare system or volunteering in the community.
We make it easy. Professionals for Patient Safety on Long Island meet monthly to talk about patient safety in any area of healthcare and we include healthcare professionals, caregivers, patients and their family members. Anyone is invited to discuss the topic or patient safety in an informal gathering meant for meaningful conversation.
Have dinner and discuss what is important to you. Dinner is about $20 off the menu
