#5: Partnership in Action - The Patient Safety Toolbox

Season #1

In this episode of MoMMA’s Voices, Emily Taylor speaks with Dr. Christina Davidson and Patient Family Partner, Trashaun Powell about the Patient Safety Toolbox. Created as a collaboration of many perspectives including, physicians, nurses, midwives, and the lived experiences of MoMMA’s Voices, the toolbox explains how to incorporate “health equity into all quality and patient safety projects.” Trashaun and Dr. Davidson also discuss how patients should advocate for themselves and use their voices. 

Here's what you'll learn in this episode:

  • “Because I think as the healthcare team, we're just thinking medically-- what do we need to do? And I think this has really opened our eyes and broadened the perspective…” (Dr. Davidson)

  • “There was a panel of patients with lived experiences, and I always found that to be one of the most impactful components of the entire session.” (Dr. Davidson)

  • “Using my mom voice was really a natural part of who I became after losing Mia.” (Trashaun P.)

  • “To be a part of this engagement… It's really powerful. It really, it really is. It's connection, it's resources, it's friendship, it's community.” (Trasuan P.)
