​​​​​​​​​​​​​Take an inter-professional team approach to improving patient safety skills, planning patient safety education, and aligning with quality improvement initiatives in your organization.

The Patient Safety Education Program – Canada (PSEP – Canada) is a two-day educational event that certifies members of inter-professional teams as patient safety trainers. Designed to help you strengthen internal capacity and grow quality improvement and patient safety initiatives, it is built on a train-the-training-team model that provides a peer-to-peer education framework.

With an emphasis on creativity and excellence in educational techniques, the PSEP – Canada conference is delivered by well-respected quality and patient safety healthcare professionals and educators from across Canada and focuses on:

  • Applying human factors in the workplace
  • Scientific methods for improving safety
  • Organizational culture and dealing with change
  • Understanding teamwork
  • Moving beyond blame to systems thinking
  • How to teach and implement patient safety

Inter-professional teams should include:

  • A physician, a nurse or other allied health professional, and an administrator responsible for quality and patient safety
  • A senior executive from the organization, who is required to sponsor the team and to participate in a one-hour, post-conference executive session webinar
