What does patient safety mean to you? How is the presence of safety different from the absence or harm? If we avoid harm, are we safe or just lucky?
These are some of the questions we explored during CPSW 2023. We championed a new approach to patient safety that fosters a curious mindset.Change is possible. We encourage you to continue exploring how even small changes can have a big impact when it comes to safer care. Small things like asking questions, engaging in safety discussions, and taking action proactively.
Canadian Patient Safety Week 2023 may be over, but don’t let that stop you from learning about the new approach to patient safety. It’s grounded in exploring, learning and acting to create safer care and reduce all forms of harm — including those caused by culturally unsafe care.Download the Rethinking Patient Safety guide
