Turning an awareness week into a full-fledged awareness campaign. As part of the creative approach lead by SHOESTRING, the campaign tagline “Every Day is Patient Safety Day” was created. Not only did it creatively express the need for focusing on the issue daily, it provided a transition from and connection to the awareness week.

The National Patient Safety Foundation kicked off its United for Patient Safety campaign, which highlights and reinforces that all of us within the health care system have a role to play in keeping patients safe and free from harm. SHOESTRING was hired to develop and launch the campaign brand design/identity, develop engaging campaign messaging, design and launch the campaign website with crowdsourcing functionality and launch the campaign nationally through various outreach strategies.

Patient safety is a public health issue. One in 10 patients develops a health care-acquired condition during hospitalization. Medical error causes the death of 44,000 to 98,000 hospital patients a year.

Work is being done at the federal, state and local levels to address these issues but it takes all of us within the care continuum to stand united. As a result of the federal Partnership for Patients initiative, there was a 1.3 million estimated reduction in hospital-acquired conditions from 2011-2013.

As part of this campaign, March 13-19, 2016 is Patient Safety Awareness Week, which will serve as a dedicated time and platform for growing awareness about patient safety.
