the TakeCHARGE Campaign
TakeCHARGE Presentation is appropriate for healthcare professionals, community members, patient advocates and caregivers. Everyone should know about TakeCHARGE and be ready to share the information to improve patient outcomes.
Why are healthcare professionals expected to get patient care right 100% of the time if the patient is not part of the patient experience?
The TakeCHARGE Campaign uses “5 Steps to Safer Health Care” to teach patients and their families how to become active members of their care teams and take more responsibility for their own safety. Learning how to be informed patients before a crisis strikes can improve health care outcomes. Preparing someone to be an informed patient when they are already in the health care system and at their most vulnerable is like teaching CPR during someone’s heart attack.
A 2016 report from Johns Hopkins estimated that more than 250,000 people died each year as a result of medical errors. Some studies report much higher numbers.
The TakeCHARGE Campaign’s approach is unique: to directly reach the general public before they become patients, teaching them to TakeCHARGE of their health care decisions. This is not about health, but health care, the journey to better health. Research shows that when patients are engaged in their health care, there can be measurable improvements in safety and results.
