​​​​​​​​​​This two-day "Become a Patient Safety Trainer" course focuses on how to teach and implement patient safety initiatives with an emphasis on an interprofessional team approach and peer to peer education.

The Patient Safety Education Program — Canada (PSEP — Canada) is a conference-based education dissemination method, which uses a train-the-trainer curriculum-driven approach grounded in specific adult learning methods to teach both content and how to disseminate it.

Participants who complete the program will be certified as PSEP — Canada trainers and will be equipped with a full patient safety education curriculum, including trigger tape videos, case-based learning tools and customizable presentations. Participants also engage in action planning activities and leave the learning event with concrete implementation plans.

Upcoming Courses

PSEP – Canada is undergoing a comprehensive evaluation of our program please continue to monitor our websites for updates and future sessions.

Executive Support

To support the spread and sustainability of PSEP — Canada initiatives and to provide a strong endorsement of the trainer's efforts, senior executive sponsorship is a critical success factor.  Participants in the program are asked to have a commitment from an Executive Sponsor upon registering for this event. To this end, a post course executive session webinar is hosted a few weeks following the course.

Post-Program Support

As part of the PSEP — Canada program, CPSI is committed to providing continuing support to PSEP — Canada Trainers. Our post-program support includes exclusive access to a web based Community of Practice, webcasts, and acknowledging the efforts of PSEP — Canada Trainers through our Innovation in Patient Safety Education (IPSE) award.
