I am a Grassroots Organizer for the Safe Patient Project
at Consumers Union, the publisher of Consumer Reports
. Our campaign seeks to eliminate medical harm in our health care system through public disclosure of health care outcomes (such as hospital-acquired infection rates and incidents of medical errors) and information about health care providers (such as complaints against and license violations of physicians and hospitals). The campaign also works to improve drug safety by ensuring that consumers have full information about prescription drugs (such as in direct-to-consumer ads and access to clinical trial results), by strengthening oversight of the FDA, and by ending practices that create conflicts of interest (such as drug company gifts to doctors). Our website is www.SafePatientProject.org
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be involved or learn more about our patient safety work!
