Recognizing the people and the organizations who are making care safer through partnership.
Safe care must include patient and family engagement. HealthCareCAN and the Canadian Patient Safety Institute strongly believe this and are working together to foster spread and sustainability of patient and family partnerships in healthcare delivery and patient safety. We are once again partnering to present the Patient Safety Champion Awards to recognize volunteers and organizations that are taking a leadership role in ensuring that patients and families are at the centre of patient safety initiatives.
