​​​These guidelines were developed by the Canadian Patient Safety Institute in conjunction with CPSI's Communication Advisory Committee to assist you and your organization throughout the process of informing the media and the public after adverse event occurs.

Effective and timely communication will serve to enhance public trust, protect public safety and serve to educate the public in a way that empowers them to be self-advocates.

In 2008, CPSI took a leading role in developing the Canadian Disclosure Guidelines, located at www.patientsafetyinstitute.ca created to ensure a consistent process is in place for healthcare providers communicating adverse events to patients and their families.
