Matching Speakers and Seekers: A New Patient Champion Speakers Portal
 Session Overview

Major forces in healthcare are requiring that all hospitals bring patients and families into quality improvement efforts, including governance retreats and best practice development. Results-driven and proactive in their approach to collaborating with healthcare leadership toward quality improvement solutions, patient advocates offer practical solutions beyond their powerful stories. Hear from leading patient advocates who have led the charge in contributing to the patient safety movement, from their perspective, and join TMIT in celebrating the launching of our new patient champions speakers portal.

In addition to our regularly broadcast WebEx webinar, TMIT will be streaming live video of the panelists and their presentations. You can view the entire webinar live, on August 18th, at http://www.safetyleaders.org/live/. You can also join the live discussion on Twitter by following @TMIT1. For those who watch the live broadcast, there will be a survey you can participate in by clicking here.
