RightCare Action Week: October 18-24


The RightCare Alliance, an initiative of the Lown Institute, is sponsoring RightCare Action Week. For a week in October (October 18-24) clinicians around the country will take ACTION to show what great healthcare looks like. You can submit your own idea for an ACTION during RightCare Action Week–and they’ll help you recruit others to join you–or go to the online forum and see the ideas others have submitted.

The only way real change will happen is if people take action together.  Join RightCare Action Week and show your colleagues and your patients what great healthcare looks like.  Go to and sign up.
