Safe & Sound™ Tools for Family Engagement in Patient-Centered Care: Student Edition

“Really engaging. Practical ideas for partnering with families. Had not thought about bedside patient safety from the family perspective before.”

“Very interactive. A great way to teach!”

“Beautiful materials!”

“Students can relate. I can tell they're often thinking about their own families [when covering Safe & Sound content].”

“CampaignZERO's mission aligns with the QSEN competency of patient-centered care. Their nursing curriculum builds the capacity of front-line nurses to work with patients and families, which is essential to improve quality and safety in health care.” Rn PhD, Director, QSEN Institute
