PATIENT SAFETY COALITION

COVID-19 Outbreak Message to our Members and Partners:

Our hearts and thoughts go out to all the medical professionals who are working through personal hardship and risk to care for the people of our state.

Please know that all of our programs continue to operate and provide full, uninterrupted support to you, our members and partners. We know that the attention of many of you is focused on urgent matters related to this healthcare crisis and we will continue to support you in any way we can. One of the ways we are supporting our healthcare community is by hosting the Washington Healthcare Forum COVID-19 Work Groups.

Regrettably we have made the decision to cancel our annual Northwest Patient Safety Conference, we will continue to produce educational material which will be found on our website. We have currently created a COVID-19 Patient Resource page to help compile information specific for patients. Should you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us directly by phone or email at any time.


The Washington State Patient Safety Coalition unites a diverse range of healthcare stakeholders to achieve one goal: safe care for every patient, every time, everywhere. 

Improving safety and decreasing errors requires the active participation of a wide range of committed individuals and organizations. WPSC is member-based program made up of 40+ organizations representing healthcare systems, associations, and advocacy groups across the state of Washington.

We greatly value the involvement of our members, who diversify the conversation with their unique perspectives and experiences. We share information in a safe, neutral setting that allows you to comfortably learn, connect, and collaborate with a community of peers.

Patient Safety Initiatives

Every two years we choose two new initiatives to focus on. Learn about what we’re focused on now.
