Virtual Care is New to Us #ConquerSilence
Thank you to everyone who participated in Canadian Patient Safety Week from October 26 to 30, 2020.
Let’s Keep the Momentum Going
The theme of Canadian Patient Safety Week 2020 was Virtual Care is New to Us. Only 10% of Canadians have experience with virtual care1, but 41% would like to have virtual visits with their healthcare providers2.
The way to ensure that healthcare providers and patients make the most of virtual appointments is to use tried and true basics – encourage patients to ask questions and to bring an advocate with them to appointments.
Although Canadian Patient Safety Week 2020 has passed, virtual care is here to stay! Please continue to access and share the virtual care resources below.
