Best Benefit Ever: Patient-Safety Providers Get Info at a Discount
National Patient Safety Foundation members receive discounted rates for an industry-specific journal.
What’s the benefit? The National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF) has joined forces with Joint Commission Resources to offer its highly regarded publication at a special rate. Print and online subscriptions to The Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety will now be available at a 20 percent discount for active members of the American Society of Professionals in Patient Safety and to organizations that belong to the foundation’s Stand Up for Patient Safety program. “NPSF is committed to putting practical, leading-edge information into the hands of the professionals who make up our membership,” Tejal K. Gandhi, president and chief executive officer of NPSF, said in a statement. “The Joint Commission Journal is recognized as a valuable resource to those in the field of patient safety, and we are pleased to offer this new benefit to our members—many of whom are working on the front lines or in leadership positions at healthcare organizations.”
Why it works for members: NPSF has found a perfect partner in Joint Commission Resources, because they both strive to improve patient care. And the insights to be gained from the commission’s flagship publication will likely prove useful for NPSF’s members. “Our content is very clearly in line with the priorities of NPSF and its membership,” Steven Berman, executive editor of The Joint Commission Journal, said in the statement. “We are very pleased to be working with NPSF to bring details of new developments in patient safety and healthcare quality to their members.”
Other benefits: The Joint Commission Journal is just one of several publications offered to NPSF members. Members can also take advantage of discounts for online patient-safety curriculums, online educational modules, and professional learning webinars.
