​​How can we improve patient safety in long-term care?

While there is a growing body of literature on patient safety, there has been less emphasis on the long-term care (LTC) setting than the acute care sector. 

Recognizing the gap in our understanding of patient/resident safety issues in LTC, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, Capital Health (Edmonton), and CapitalCare (Edmonton) collaborated to create a research and action agenda for improving safety in the LTC setting.
