Virtual care is new to most of us. #ConquerSilence

Welcome to your home for Canadian Patient Safety Week! #ConquerSilence

Virtual Care is New to Most of Us

The theme of Canadian Patient Safety Week 2020 is 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.

During Canadian Patient Safety Week, join us in the following activities to conquer silence. Let's work together for better healthcare for all.

Be sure to take full advantage of all the activities during Canadian Patient Safety Week:

  • Visit for tips and tools for both healthcare providers and patients on how to make the most of virtual care appointments (coming early October).
  • Listen to three new episodes of our award-winning PATIENT podcasts (released during CPSW week)
  • Register for the Virtual Care webinar (details coming soon)
  • Register for a webinar on the Canadian Quality and Patient Safety framework (details coming soon)
  • Join in our "Virtual Care is New to Us social media campaign" #ConquerSilence (details coming soon)

Please explore the Canadian Patient Safety Week Tools & Resources, including our upcoming Communications Toolkit.  Remember to sign up for updates on Canadian Patient Safety Week HERE.


Canadian Patient Safety Week is a national, annual campaign that started in 2005 to inspire extraordinary improvement in patient safety and quality. As the momentum for promoting best practices in patient safety has grown, so has the participation in Canadian Patient Safety Week. Canadian Patient Safety week is relevant to anyone who engages with our healthcare system: providers, patients, and citizens. Working together, thousands help spread the message to Conquer Silence.
