MAPS is pleased to announce that the final report for its work on Ensuring Safety at Transitions of Care is now available. The initiative's goal was to identify effective ways to engage health care consumers in taking a more active and informed role in the management of their health care transitions to reduce potential harm.
The final report is available on MAPS website, or if you would like a hard copy, please email MAPS to request one.
Some organizations continue to distribute packets and refer patients/residents to the campaign website www.ownbestmedicine.mn. Organizations can download a click button on their own website which directs patients to www.ownbestmedicine.mn. On the campaign website visitors can view an instructive video, print a "To-Do" list, download a tablet and smart phone app with picture and voice capabilities and access reference information. There are
a limited number of packets available for consumers to use during transitions of care. Please email us if you would like to use some in your facility.
