​​​​​The Patient Safety Education Project-Canada (PSEP-Canada) trains teams to more effectively drive patient safety improvements in healthcare organizations. The “Become a PSEP-Canada Patient Safety Trainer” is for professionals who are passionate about patient safety work and have the proven skills and ability to motivate change. This 2 1/2 day conference is for clinicians, administrators and other professionals interested in patient safety and will prepare attendees to:

  • Deliver a high-impact, comprehensive patient safety curriculum;
  • Utilize effective teaching approaches based on adult education methods;
  • Promote effective fundamental patient safety practices in their organization; and
  • Foster a culture of patient safety.

PSEP-Canada requires commitment from an executive leader within the organization to participate in the final half-day of the Become a PSEP-Canada Patient Safety Trainer conference and to support dissemination in their home organization.

If you are struggling to integrate fundamental patient safety practices into the routine delivery of healthcare, this conference is for you! Become a PSEP-Canada Patient Safety Trainer provides the “how-to” steps to translate knowledge into better patient safety practices and thus, better outcomes. Teams attending the conference will have the opportunity to practice teaching skills and actively plan next steps for patient safety education in their home organization.

The Patient Safety Education Project (PSEP), was developed by Dr. Linda Emanuel and her team from Northwestern University and in partnership with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, the content has been adapted for Canadian healthcare settings.

“Participants from this program say that they are learning things for the first time and it is the training that they have been missing,” says Dr. Emanuel. “Participants receive an ‘accordion curriculum’ where they can use as much as they need and they can apply this new knowledge in any area where they want to improve quality. They receive the skills and materials to build capacity of their team and apply it in their home setting.”

Pilot sessions are planned for November 15 to 17, 2010 /or February 8-10, 2011. If you are interested in becoming a PSEP Patient Safety Trainer to support your patient safety and quality improvement work, contact Abigail Hain -
