Advocacy

The Florida Society for Health Care Risk Management and Patient Safety is considered the leading voice in Florida on issues related to Risk Management and Patient Safety across the continuum of care, regardless of setting.  Our goal is to "advocate" for public policy that benefits patients through a safe, trusted and accessible heatlhcare system.  We seek to collaborate with other organizations focused on issues related patient safety in order to ensure that the unique view of risk management is included in ways that improve quality and accessibility throughout the healthcare delivery system.

The FSHRMPS Advocacy Committee provides input to the Board of Directors on legislative, administrative, and regulatory activities which impact healthcare risk management and patient safety. The committee also works to develop a collaborative relationship with the relevant committees of other healthcare professional organizations with similar legislative and regulatory concerns.
