TakeCharge Campaign May Highlights

During the month of May the TakeCHARGE Campaign is focusing on step 2 of their 5 month educational campaign by providing information to help patients and caregivers to “KEEP TRACK OF YOUR MEDICAL HISTORY AND MEDICATIONS”

Clear and straight forward advice on medical records and medications is provided on their website

The TakeCHARGE Campaign also provides several helpful links to information and tools to assist people with keeping a medications list.

NY StateWide Senior Action Council Partners with the Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy in the new national TakeCHARGE Campaign. 

NY StateWide Senior Action Council is proud to be a partner with the Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy and several other organizations in the new national TakeCHARGE Campaign

We urge our Chapters, members and aging network organizations to learn about this important  effort to increase patient safety and empowerment.  This is a perfect activity to work on during the pandemic and this time of limited travel.  It is something we can all so to further protect ourselves and our families.

The Campaign promotes “5 Steps to Safer Health Care” and instructions and videos for each step can be found on their website at: https://www.takecharge.care/the-5-steps.html

Step ​1: Complete Your Advance Directives

Step 2: KEEP TRACK OF YOUR MEDICAL HISTORY AND MEDICATIONS

Step 3: Prepare for Doctor Visit or Hospital Stay Start with a List of Questions

Step 4: Help Prevent Infections, Ask Caregivers to Wash Their Hands

Step 5: Use an Advocate, Be an Advocate for Others

What’s a Patient Advocate

Taking this critical 5 steps has been proven to save lives, increase patient empowerment, and improve health care outcomes!!! 

We urge you to review the 5 Steps and use them to help empower you as a patient.  Please share this information with your members and people in the community that you work with.

NOTE: The Take CHARGE Campaign will also be featured on our June 21 Telephone Teach In and we will provide information about that presentation in the coming weeks.
