Patient safety is more important than ever, and the Canadian Patient Safety Institute is leading the efforts to emphasize the presence of safety in healthcare.
We are working to equip and encourage every person on a healthcare journey to identify patient safety, celebrate it, and share all successes.
The Presence of Safety can be hard to see, but each of us can learn to recognize it. We can learn to ask for it. Each of us – whether a patient or family member, a healthcare provider, or leader – can learn to become an advocate for the presence of safety. Once you learn to look for it, you will find safety present everywhere, and know what to do if it is absent.
Below are resources to help keep yourself and your family members safe in our healthcare system:
