Channeling Grief into Action: Creating a Culture of Safety...On Call with Sorrel King

On February 22, 2001, Sorrel King’s 18-month old daughter, Josie, died from medical errors incurred at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Channeling her grief and anger into determination, Sorrel created the Josie King Foundation, which is dedicated to making health care safer by creating an environment where providers, patients, and families can work together.

Sorrel believes that it is up to students to create this new culture in health care – a culture of safety.

Hear her moving story and learn:
• How to listen to patients more effectively
• How to speak up on behalf of patients even when you're at the bottom of your organization's hierarchy
• How to make patients and families an effective part of the care team
