A series of films have been developed for Patients for Patient Safety. Films from the PAHO, SEARO and EURO regions focus on past workshops and interviews with individual patient champions in the regions, while the Global Champions film brings together a selection of interviews from patient champions from across the regions. There are also a number of films focusing on specific issues; The "When things go wrong" film focuses on open disclosure and apology, while there are two short films focusing on the issue of hospital acquired infection and the importance of hand hygiene. The organization Consumers Advancing Patient Safety have kindly agreed to host the films and they are now available to download from the link below.
