For Med Safety Week, we can hijack the hashtag to raise awareness about med side effects and the terrible care that patients receive. The UK safety commissioner (@PSCommissioner) did keep tabs on the patient-led #MedSafetyWeek campaign (she followed me on Twitter) so they are listening. In the end, mainstream medicine will take care of patients who suffer debilitating side effects following medications gone wrong. We just have to be persistent in advocating for better healthcare.
