Since its launch on February 15, 2011, frontline healthcare providers around the world have come to rely on Global Patient Safety Alerts for access to information on patient safety incidents, from causes, to solutions and recommendations.
Developed by the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, Global Patient Safety Alerts is an innovative web-based information-sharing resource to help you prevent and mitigate patient safety incidents in your organization and help others succeed.
There are currently more than 650 patient safety incident advisories, alerts and recommendations to help organizations recognize, respond to, and reduce patient safety incidents. Learn what works and share your own insights and solutions with healthcare providers, healthcare organizations, patients, and the public. We are continuously adding new alerts so check back often.
The Canadian Patient Safety Institute has also partnered with the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality/Quality and Safety Research Group to provide a third-party evaluation of Global Patient Safety Alerts as a mechanism for sharing and learning. This will ensure the ongoing reliability and value of Global Patient Safety Alerts for healthcare providers around the world.
For iPhone and iPad users, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute is also preparing for the launch of a mobile app, providing access to Global Patient Safety Alerts in the palm of your hand.
