Whether you are a seasoned pro or just getting started at dabbling in social media, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) strives to be interactive, providing you with an opportunity to customize your online experience.
“Social media is much more than Twitter and Facebook,” says Abisaac Saraga, Web & Social Media Manager at CPSI. “It is about accessibility of information, allowing user input, interaction and dialogue; and allowing the user to customize their experience.”
CPSI has a number of opportunities available to help you get engaged in social media:
Patient Safety Crosswalk was designed for information sharing. Organizations share links to patient safety information on their website including news, events, programs and more
Improving Care Search Centre – Users can customize the news and information they want to see from several websites together in one place. Users will also be able to search all of the CPSI websites, including Global Patient Safety Alerts, Safer Healthcare Now! and Stop! Clean Your Hands, as well as websites from organizations across Canada and around the world.
Twitter @Patient_Safety –CPSI shares updates on programs, news, and events with followers and people following twitter topics such as #ptsafety #cdnhealth #hcsmca.
Twitter @SafeCareLibrary – Updates on patient safety research shared by its followers, as well as twitter topics such as #ptsafety and #healthlit.
StopSuperbugs.com – A magazine website built by the New Approach to Controlling Superbugs team to help “spread the word” about the new approach to controlling superbugs and Positive Deviance. This is a useful resource for users engaged in the infection control community.
