This year, National Patient Safety Week falls on March 12-March 18. This week reminds us that respect and curiosity for patients’ religious and spiritual needs are essential for maintaining safe health care environments. 

Tanenbaum’s Health Care program supports providers in embodying religious and spiritual safety throughout the care process. Check out our resource, Spiritual Histories: Putting Religio-Cultural Competence into Practice  for guidance on how and when providers should ask patients about their religious and spiritual beliefs.   

We hope you have a happy and healthy National Patient Safety Week!
