At MAPS' 2018 conference, we displayed beautiful, illustrated storyboards of patient journeys that included preventable errors, complications, and unexpected events in the course of their care. These courageous patients have agreed to share their stories more broadly.

We invite you to print these beautiful storyboards (best quality as 22” by 28”) and place on easels for a “pop-up art gallery” in a conference room, empty patient/resident room, break room, or common area.  Your staff and clinicians can visit the gallery to reflect on these patients' safety journeys.


Patient 1 - surgical complication

Patient 2 - medication error

Patient 3 - misdiagnosis

Patient 4 - colostomy
