The Impact of Medical Error on Family Members: A study

Sherry Worsham, a graduate student at Harvard, is conducting a study on the impact of medical error on family members. She is looking for adults with a family member who experienced an injurious medical error between Jan. 1, 1999 and Jan. 1, 2009 to answer a 30-minute online survey. You can learn more about it here; type in CAT as the password.

Advice to injured patients and their family members:
Look for opportunities to tell your story.

Thanks to Helen Haskell of Mothers Against Medical Errors for passing this on.
