The following guiding principles for the Policy Framework reflect the current values and desired goals underlying patient safety policy in Canada:

  • Patient care is as safe as possible across Canada, and efforts are made to improve care when a patient safety incident occurs; 
  • Jurisdictions and organizations have mechanisms for measuring and monitoring safety;  
  • Patients, families and the public are actively engaged and empowered; 
  • Supportive and engaged leadership promotes a culture of safety; 
  • A caring and just culture is established at all levels of the Canadian healthcare system; and 
  • The health workforce is engaged and supported.
