“Every Patient Safe: championing the voice of patients in advancing safe health care" will feature family members' stories about their experiences in the ICU and identify improvements made with the involvement of patients. The roles that patients and family members can play in formal patient safety work (i.e. Safer Healthcare Now!, Accreditation Canada, and ISMP-Canada) will also be explored, along with the work of Patients for Patient Safety Canada, a new organization dedicated to ensuring the patient perspective is included in all safety improvement initiatives. Options such as a patient-family advisory committee and strategies for winning senior management support will be discussed with examples and specific resources presented. Guest Speakers: Carol Kushner and Donna Davis. This National Call is hosted by the Canadian ICU Collaborative Faculty.
