    Here’s the evidence: patients are hungry for clear information

    With 100% nursing support, we adopted the Safe & Sound PFE program – the solution we’ve been looking for! The checklists are simple, clear, and friendly – truly engaging!

    Safe & Sound has also inspired other QI activities at UTMB, which we’re excited about.

    I highly recommend Safe & Sound PFE to any organization dedicated to patient-centered care. It’s been an exceptional partnership for us.

    As non-profits go, we’re a bit odd. We put almost zero effort into fundraising. Instead, we charge a fair price for valuable resources no one else provides.

    We focus our time and skills on patient education.
    It’s what we do best so providers can focus on what they do best.

    Patients can learn.  Healers can heal.
