Canada has the safest healthcare in the world
To inspire and advance a culture committed to sustained improvement for safer healthcare
Lead system strategies to ensure safe healthcare by demonstrating what works and strengthening commitment
Established by Health Canada in 2003, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) works with governments, health organizations, leaders, and healthcare providers to inspire extraordinary improvement in patient safety and quality.
In 2002 the National Steering Committee on Patient Safety published the report Building a Safer System. The report outlined a national, integrated strategy for improving patient safety in the Canadian healthcare system which named establishing the Canadian Patient Safety Institute as its number one recommendation. As a result of this work, Health Canada supported the creation and the funding of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute. Read the report,
