Pulse CPSEA and Coronavirus

We will stick with what we do and have done so well for over twenty years and leave the advice and information about a pandemic to the experts.
You won’t read about coronavirus at Pulse. There are enough highly qualified and trained professional people and organizations that can answer your questions on what to do and what to expect during a pandemic. You surely don’t need another organization sharing the same information you probably hear daily. So, we will stick with what we do best. We will help you prepare for when you become a patient. 
One way we are doing that is through the TakeCHARGE Campaign: 5 Steps to Safer Health Care —

We also have our Patient Activation through Community Conversations program which is now monthly through Zoom. This can also be offered for your group or organization and covers topics such as:

·          Experience at the doctor’s office
·          Getting a diagnosis
·          Preparing for your hospital stay
·          Medication experiences
And many more subjects that you can choose to discuss as a participant

When it comes to diseases such as COVID-19, the best thing we believe we can do is point you to some of the top organizations that can help with clear, up-to-date information. Please be sure you are getting your information from reputable organizations.

Just in Time, Now That We All May Become Patients
No Lectures - Just Conversation
Patient Activation through Community Conversations
August 7, 2:00 PM Eastern NY Time
Patient Activation through Community Conversations (PACC) is a program where people share their experiences so others can take away important information that would be of benefit to someone as a caregiver, someone recently receiving a new diagnosis or entering the healthcare system. PACC encourages finding solutions through what has worked for others . Learn more and register here
For more information or to host a PACC around a specific group of people (age, medical condition or even family or faith community, etc.) Call (516) 579-4711. We encourage a minimum of ten people and maximum of twenty.

What would it be worth to potentially save a life?
If you think that well-prepared patients have better medical outcomes (hint:it's true!)...

Consider becoming a sponsor of this important project. The Pulse Center was started following the founder’s tragic loss of her young son due to a series of preventable medical errors, in an effort to save others from suffering the same fate. The TakeCHARGE campaign seeks to reach more people with a simplified 5 Steps to Patient Safety.
