​Most patients in C​anadian hospitals experience safe care, but when harm happens there is a significant impact on patients, families, the healthcare team, and the health system in general. Until now, there hasn't been a standard approach to measuring and monitoring harm experienced by patients in hospital. CPSI and CIHI have been collaborating on a body of work on hospital harm. The result is a new measure of patient harm that occurs in acute care hospitals that links the measurement work directly with practical resources for improvement. CPSI hosted a Webinar on December 6, 2016 to explore how the elements of the CIHI/CPSI collaboration can support patient safety initiatives in your organization. ​​​​
