The World Health Organization's Patient Safety and Quality Improvement unit at WHO-headquarters in Geneva has officially designated CPSI as a WHO Collaborating Centre for Patient Safety and Patient Engagement to carry out activities in support of WHO programs internationally. Of the more than 800 WHO Collaborating Centres from 80 countries worldwide, including 31 from Canada, CPSI holds the distinction of being the only one in Canada with a focus on both patient safety and patient engagement.
Over the course of the next four years, CPSI will lend policy, strategic and technical advice and consultation on various WHO initiatives, as well as support for the development, adaptation, spread, and evaluation of patient safety tools and resources at a global level.
