About the Minnesota Alliance for Patient Safety

What We Stand For

MAPS works to achieve its mission of safe care everywhere by engaging a diverse stakeholder coalition that includes a devoted a Board of Directors, membership leaders, dedicated staff, and over 100 members that broadly represent Minnesota's health care community.  MAPS will focus its efforts on educational programming, original projects, patient and family engagement, and collaboration across all care settings.  Throughout its first decade of work, MAPS brought new standards around informed consent, medication safety culture of safety to the community. In its second decade, MAPS will expand these efforts, as well as tackle emerging topics in patient safety, such as patient and family engagement, diagnostic error, and transitions of care.  Please contact us to learn how to get involved in MAPS.
