Given the importance of effective information and knowledge delivery in medicine in relation to safe and effective patient care, we are interested in the opinions of librarians about how they feel they affect patient safety in their organizations. By asking you (if you work in an information capacity in your organization) or librarians you might work with to participate in our short survey (about 10 minutes to complete), we plan to:
1) Informally assess how information professionals are involved with patient safety initiatives,
2) Document how information professionals directly contribute to such initiatives by aligning themselves with this high-profile, leadership-valued issue.
3) Update our findings from the 2003 survey to mark improvements and note other important changes in the librarian activities related to patient safety work
