Legislative Advocacy

The control and prevention of medical accidents and injuries is a significant public health and safety concern in Florida and across the country.  An essential method of controlling medical injuries is a comprehensive program of risk management, as required in Florida Law. Our society serves as an "advocate" for public policy that benefits patients through a safe, trusted and accessible healthcare system.

FSHRMPS staff and members of our Advocacy Committee are actively engaged in communicating with members of the following legislative committees and tracking legislation moving through these committees.

Florida House of Representatives

          Health and Human Services Committee

Florida Senate

         Health Policy

We encourage all of our members to become connected with the leadership of these legislative committees (as well as your own individual Representative or Senator) and to help us encourage these members to support public policy to improve patient safety and access to affordable, quality healthcare.
