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

de it."

The idea for a Compact arose during an NPSF-led Roundtable at the 2007 Nursing Leadership Congress led by McKesson Corporation, which drew approximately 150 nurse executives from across the United States for lectures and roundtable discussions on best-practice approaches to medication safety and other key quality issues in healthcare. The event was sponsored by Intel and McKesson along with NPSF, Joint Commission Resources, the American Organization of Nurse Executives and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices.

Next steps involve gaining consensus within the healthcare industry on the specific tenets of the Compact and its use. Linda Kenney, Chair of NPSF's Patient and Family Committee and a consumer advocate whose foundation supports patients, families and caregivers involved in adverse medical events, called on the healthcare community to move quickly. "I see the Compact as a wonderful opportunity to simplify what's currently in place," Kenney said. "The Compact reinforces the humanity of the patient/provider relationship which is oftentimes missing. It's really about going back to basics."

McKesson applauded the goals of the Universal Patient Compact. "We are honored to collaborate with NPSF in advancing the objectives of the Universal Patient Compact," said Mary Beth Navarra-Sirio, R.N., M.B.A., Patient Safety Officer, McKesson Provider Technologies. "Just as technology is an enabler for many of the processes that lead to greater quality and better outcomes, the Compact is an enabler for more effective partnering as patients and their families become active members of the care team."
