Are you up for the challenge?

The Health Care Alliance for Patient Safety is proud to announce a new way to show off your commitment to protecting patient safety! We have put together a list of ways to stay informed on public policies affecting patient safety and steps you can take to advocate on their behalf. Our Advocate Leaderboard will display the leading doctors of optometry and patient-safety advocates who take actions and promote patient safety. These advocates are leading by example by getting educated and advocating for patient safety and the doctor-patient relationship. Will you join them?

How to get on the board 

Join the competition to become a leading patient-safety advocate by taking any of the following actions and earning advocacy points.

Educate

  1. Read an article from the National Consumers League that calls on Congress to update the Contact Lens Rule by ending the use of robocalls for contact lens prescription verification and adopting common-sense signage instead of burdensome paperwork requirements. (20 advocacy points)

  2. Share your story of how illegal contact lens sales from online retailers have negatively affected you or a patient so that we can show Congress and the FTC real stories of the negative impact of loopholes in the contact lens prescription verification process. (50 advocacy points)

Advocate

  1. Send a letter to your members of Congress urging them to pass the Contact Lens Prescription Verification Modernization Act! (40 advocacy points)
  2. Contact your Legislators to tell them to protect patient safety by supporting legislation that would help protect patient safety and the doctor-patient relationship.

Communicate
