Art & Patient Safety Awareness: What does Patient Safety Mean to You?
Educating the public about medical errors and patient empowerment has always been a primary goal of Washington Advocates for Patient Safety (WAPS). At our spring WAPS meeting, member Vikki Owens came up with a brilliant idea to use art as a vehicle to raise public’s awareness on patient safety. Following Vikki’s suggestion, we took action.
On Saturday, August 15th, we did a public information booth at the Woodinville Festival and Street Fair. Our theme was “Art & Patient Safety Awareness, What does Patient Safety mean to you?” It was an amazingly positive experience.
The Woodinville Festival and Street Fair is a popular local free event for the suburb of Seattle. Typically about 5000+ people show up to check out a mixture of informational, art, crafts, and food booths as well as live music. Our organization has been planning to do an informational booth at a local street fair for some time and this year it came to fruition.
