Patient Safety Awareness Week 2015

The National Patient Safety Foundation approaches patients and families to advance safety of patients as well as health care workforce, and promote strategies to prevent harm. This week is the Patient Safety Awareness Week for 2015.
One program targeted directly to patients is Ask Me 3, a patient education program whose goal is to improve communication between patients and health care providers, and encourage patients to become active members of their health care team. The program encourages patients to ask their health care providers three basic questions:

1. What is my main problem?

2. What do I need to do?

3. Why is it important for me to do this
