SHIFT to Safety.
It feels good to finally be able to say it out loud!
For months, we've had to bite our tongues in order to keep the announcement of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute's latest program under wraps. The shroud of secrecy was finally lifted July 20 at The Ottawa Hospital when SHIFT to Safety was unveiled to the country.
And what an unveiling it was! From the increase in web traffic (double what we see on a normal day) and the flurry of people watching the launch on Facebook Live, it's safe to say the Canadian healthcare community is pretty excited about the latest patient safety and quality improvement tools at their disposal.
So they should be! SHIFTtoSafety.com is your new source for patient safety. Whether you're a member of the public, a healthcare provider, or a leader, we've got tools built to meet your specific needs. Furthermore, our mobile-friendly site means that you can access all of the content from anywhere and on any device.
For us, the best part is that we're reaching out to the public like never before. We know patients and their families are vital members of the healthcare team and its time to treat them as such. The easily accessible materials available to them free of charge will allow patients and families to truly embrace that role.
What's online right now, is just a sample of what's to come in the year ahead. We've got additional tools and resources in the works and we'll get them out to you as soon as they're ready! We know you appreciate the quality CPSI is known for and that it will be worth the wait.
In the meantime, visit SHIFTtoSafety.com and browse around and let us know what you think! We want to provide you with the best, and your feedback will go a long way towards helping us hit that mark.
