The Canadian Patient Safety Institute is undertaking a consultation process to solicit feedback from healthcare professionals and leaders across Canada on the revised Canadian Disclosure Guidelines, first published in 2008. The document was updated in consultation with a small group of members from the original Disclosure Working Group, and is titled Canadian Disclosure Guidelines: Being Open with Patients and Families.
Two national webinars have been scheduled to outline the changes to the document and provide more insight into the consultation process. An English session will take place on Tuesday, June 21st and a French session on Monday, June 27, 2011 from 12:30 to 2:00 pm EST. Click here to register.
We invite your feedback
In mid-July, a survey will be sent to those that participated in the national webinars and other stakeholders to gather input and feedback on the draft publication. A survey report will be compiled by the end of the summer and this information will be used to finalize content for the Guidelines. The new Canadian Disclosure Guidelines: Being Open with Patients and Families will be released this Fall.
This is your opportunity to get involved! We value your input and look forward to hearing your thoughts on the new Guidelines through the survey.
