The World Health Organization will host the first World Patient Safety Day Sept. 17, an opportunity for hospitals and health systems to share their good work and resources on patient safety, safety culture and patient engagement. AHA will highlight the work of member hospitals through its AHA Stat blog and social media channels, and encourages members to tweet about their own patient safety improvements using the hashtags and resources provided at https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-patient-safety-day/2019. For additional quality and patient safety resources, including a 2018 AHA TrendWatch report and infographic on quality advances by hospitals and health systems over the past decade, visit https://www.aha.org/advocacy/quality-and-patient-safety
