If you are looking for tips, tools and resources for addressing patient safety problems, Patient Safety Practices is an excellent online resource for health care professionals and the public.

You will find more than 800 links to trusted patient safety websites. The problem categories and topics have been chosen from the Joint Commission’s Sentinel Event Database. We are working to refine the categories and to add helpful resources.
