Developing an intervention to reduce harm in hospitalized patients: patients and families in research.

Schenk EC, Bryant RA, Van Son CR, et al. Journal of nursing care quality. 2019;34:273-278.

This qualitative study asked patients and families to evaluate the feasibility of an advocate to help families speak up about safety concerns in the hospital. Patients and families identified concerns and opportunities that the research team had not previously considered. A past Annual Perspective discussed the many ways patients and families can make their care safer.
