Joint Commission International Center for Patient Safety Launches New Resource
MedSun: Newsletter #3, April 2006

The Joint Commission International Center for Patient Safety has announced the launch of a new database, accessible through the Center’s Web site, that will allow health care professionals as well as patients and their families to access information about safety issues in health care settings. Patient Safety Practices: An Online Resource for Improving Patient Safety features more than 500 links to a wide variety of respected domestic and international patient safety Web sites. The easy-to-use database is being introduced as a work in progress to encourage users to submit additional safe practices that can be shared and to suggest ways in which the database can become even more helpful.
