​​​​​There is tremendous activity around patient safety in Canada. There are quality and patient safety councils in most provinces and many national organizations who dedicate all or part of their mandate to patient safety. The question inevitably follows: how can these organizations share their expertise and work together to support safer care for all Canadians?

 

In 2014, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute brought together key partners in Canadian healthcare and established the National Patient Safety Consortium to drive a shared action plan for safer healthcare. More than 50 participating organizations, including national organizations, provincial and territorial quality and patient safety councils, government representatives, professional associations and patient groups.

At its first meeting in January 2014, the Consortium established an Action Plan, entitled Forward with Patient Safety:Commitment through Action.  The key themes are patient voice; leadership; measurement; and communication.
