Defending High Quality Health Care
The Right to Safe Care Coalition was formed to educate stakeholders, including the public, about the importance of effective lifelong learning programs administered by voluntary credentialing organizations, health professional licensing boards, and hospitals and other health care delivery institutions. These programs protect the public, promote patient safety and help ensure high quality health care services for everyone.
There is a growing movement to lower professional standards for health care providers. Individuals and groups at the state and national level are asking state legislatures and regulators to abandon the external, data-driven validation afforded by the certification and certification maintenance process.
The Right to Safe Care Coalition has formed to educate leaders like you about the potential erosion of these important standards.
