Patients for Patient Safety Canada is a patient-led program of CPSI. We are the voice of the patient* and bring our safety experiences to help improve patient safety at all levels in the health system.
Our unique and valuable perspective complements those of care providers, health leaders, policy makers, and managers of healthcare organizations and by working in partnership we help ensure that patient safety decisions and initiatives are truly patient-centred and result in safe care. Read about our independent evaluation.
We work collaboratively with others to contribute at all levels in the healthcare system by:
- Sharing our experiences, observations, and perspectives
- Representing the patient and family perspective in committees and working groups
- Identifying, initiating, sharing, and leading patient safety projects
See examples of how we have partnered with the health system.
Patient* = patients, clients, residents, customers, and family members (as defined by the patient)
