You're invited to join the National Conversation: Implementing Safer, More Efficient Care. The event begins with a plenary session broadcast live across the country on October 30th at 10 am ET, at the Alberta Health Services' Quality and Safety Summit in Edmonton, AB. The National Conversation is presented as a partnership between the Canadian College of Health Leaders, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute and GS1 Canada.

The plenary session will feature presentations by:

  • Dr. Anne Snowdon, Chair, World Health Innovation Network, Scientific Director & CEO, SCAN Health, Odette School of Business, University of Windsor
  • Dr. Verna Yiu, President and CEO, Alberta Health Services
  • Deb Prowse, Alberta Health Advocate

The event will be moderated by Ray Racette, President and CEO, Canadian College of Health Leaders, and Chris Power, CEO, Canadian Patient Safety Institute. Topics to be addressed in the plenary include:

  • the importance of creating safe care environments,
  • the urgency of implementing supply chain reforms,
  • barcoding and tracking to prevent errors,
  • the role of senior leadership in supporting patient safety and the creation of safe care cultures.

After inspiring ideas and stimulating dialogue during the virtual plenary session, the audience is encouraged to continue the conversation locally and begin to develop solutions to the issues addressed that are actionable and make sense within the context of that locale.  The end goal is take the feedback from the local discussions and to form a white paper.
