Surgical Care Safety

With the leadership of the Leads Group and many partners, 92% of surgical care safety actions are complete or in progress as of March 31, 2018.  The Leads Group and partners will transition ongoing work into TeamSTEPPS and Enhanced Recovery Canada. More specifically, partners with CPSI will: 

  • Participate in and provide secretariat support to the Enhanced Recovery Canada  governance committee, clinical pathway and patient and family engagement working groups to implement a Safety Improvement Project in FY 2019-20
  • Lead a communication plan for the distribution of a common set of national surgical safety indicators
  • Advance lessons learned from research into teamwork and communication in the OR settings into TeamSTEPPS training
  • Continue to support strong patient engagement in surgical care by housing carefully selected tools via CFHI's Patient Engagement Resource Hub

 

CPSI would like to thank members of the Surgical Care Safety Leads Group for their many contributions to this work:

  • Donna Penner, Brian Penner and Donna Davis, Patients for Patient Safety Canada
  • Bonnie MacLeod, ORNAC,
  • Dr. Claude Laflamme, CAS,
