“This important work will add to the considerable value provided by PSMF’s Patient Safety Curriculum,” said Mark Warner, APSF President. “To ensure the safety of patients and achieve our collective goal of zero preventable deaths in hospitals, it’s imperative to educate and train medical professionals in patient safety.”

To be eligible, applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • Be an anesthesia professional (i.e., anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, or anesthesiologist assistant)
  • Hold a full-time position in a Department of Anesthesiology at a U.S. academic institution
  • Have a documented interest in and aptitude for anesthesia education and patient safety

Additional proposal requirements are available at the APSF website: APSF.org. The deadline for submittals is 5:00 p.m. CDT, December 31, 2019. Notification of the award will be made March 6, 2020.

“I can’t think of a better organization to partner with on this project than the APSF. This program will help healthcare professionals develop the knowledge, skills, attitude and behaviors necessary to eliminate preventable medical errors,” said Dr. David Mayer, PSMF CEO. “It builds upon the great work done by our Patient Safety Curriculum workgroup in developing the existing coursework.”

About the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation

Founded in 1985, the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) promotes research of perioperative patient safety issues, supports the development of careers in patient safety, provides patient safety educational materials and communications to all anesthesia providers, and advocates for changes in clinical practices that improve patient safety. The APSF’s goal is for no patient to be harmed by anesthesia.

About the Patient Safety Movement Foundation

Each year, more than 200,000 people die unnecessarily in U.S. hospitals. Worldwide, 4.8 million lives are similarly lost. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) is a global non-profit that offers free tools to help achieve ZERO preventable deaths from hospital errors. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation was established through the support of the Masimo Foundation for Ethics, Innovation, and Competition in Healthcare to reduce that number of preventable deaths to ZERO. Improving patient safety requires a collaborative effort from all stakeholders, including patients, healthcare providers, medical technology companies, government, employers, and private payers. PSMF’s World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit brings together the world’s best minds for thought-provoking discussions and new ideas to challenge the status quo. Our Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS) provide evidence-based processes to help hospitals eliminate errors. Our Open Data Pledge encourages healthcare technology companies to share the data for which their products are purchased. Visit patientsafetymovement.org.
