National Patient Safety Foundation Proposes Universal Patient Compact
Date:3/7/2008

National initiative to strengthen provider-patient collaboration

NORTH ADAMS, Mass., March 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Recognizing the vital role that effective partnering plays in improving patient safety and health care quality, today the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF) proposed the development of a Universal Patient Compact to complement the Consumer Bill of Rights and Responsibilities.
