The National Patient Safety Foundation will trim its board of directors to 12 to 15 members from 40 and add a new board of governors of yet-to-be-determined size. The board of directors will retain fiduciary responsibility for the 10-year-old organization, while the board of governors will provide advice and direction. It likely will meet twice a year, the foundation said. In addition, the directors will appoint "distinguished advisers," who are recognized leaders in patient safety, to help support the foundation's mission. The foundation said it will accept applications for directors and governors through Jan. 18. Applications are available online at npsf.org.
