Community Medical Foundation for Patient Safety

The Community of Competence™ and Foundation for Life

National Patient Safety Community

With so many individuals, organizations and foundations actively involved in patient safety advocacy and services, we conducted the first national survey in 2008 to identify this unique community, their mission, programs and impact toward patient-centered care.  In 2010, the results from this survey was published in the first National Patient Safety Directory, listing 50 such organizations and 81 official Patient Safety Organizations at that time.

We recognize and commend these organizations in their diversity, creativity, commitment and demonstrative success toward a true paradigm shift in the improving the quality and safety of our healthcare system.  The National Patient Safety Community supports patients and families with helpful information, shared experiences (stories), advice, referrals, and other resources.  

If your organizations wishes to be listed in our National Directory, please complete our Annual Patient Safety Survey. The second edition of our National Directory will published and released in 2014.
