Patient Safety Resources for Clinicians

The Patient Safety Committee serves the Academy and the public by monitoring patient safety issues and programs as they relate to orthopaedic surgery, care, and practice. The Patient Safety Committee interacts with governmental and private organizations such as the Joint Commission (TJC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop programs and materials that increase safe practices in orthopaedics.
