Impact of Medical Error Survey
You are invited to take part in a research project investigating the impact of medical error on the family members of the patient. Your participation will be a valuable contribution to patient safety research, and I strongly encourage you to participate if you qualify. If not, please pass it along to others that may be interested in the study.
The invitation that follows is offered by Sherry Worsham, a graduate student at Harvard University. MITSS has agreed to forward this research opportunity to you. We believe this study will be useful for many of us who are doing this work.
Thank you for your time.
