The Long Island Patient Safety Advisory Council (PSAC) is an independent, community-based program representing disease-specific organizations, diverse socio-cultural groups and community members committed to incorporating patient safety into their organizations and programs. Through tools and reports we share information with the medical community and patient advocates about some of the obstacles to safe care that participants report to us. The primary objective of this council is to learn, from the grassroots up, what community members feel is needed to address patient safety.
Participating organizations or groups allow access to their members / constituencies to learn about areas of patient concern and to assist in reviewing information — specifically related to the findings of their organization’s members — that will be made available to advocates, hospitals and healthcare organizations.
A member may be appointed from the group or organization to be a liaison to the council but should plan to participate for the full year. Usually there is more than one meeting. Educational programs may be ongoing for any one group.
Stipends may be offered at the end of the year to the liaison people or organization for their work in the Council.
