Patient Safety, Risk Management & Related Resources on Twitter

One of my colleagues will be leaving for a new job on campus working with patient safety research and initiatives. Very exciting, and I as delighted to chat about some of the resources I know about for these topics. When I started looking into Twitter, though, this grew exponentially. Since Twitter unfortunately only allows people to make 25 lists (with only 500 names per list), and save only 10 searches, I feel very handicapped much of the time. I often collect names of people to follow on a specific topic, but then beg someone else to make the list for me so I can follow it on their account. This will be another one of those, listing top Twitter accounts on patient safety and closely related concepts. If anyone makes a Twitter list from these, please let me know and I will follow your list. 🙂 @pfanderson

Many thanks to @ClinicalCafe, @ePatientDave, @SusanCarr, @rcyoung87, and @SafetyNurse for their assistance.
