Patients for Patient Safety Canada 

We are the voice of the patient* and bring our healthcare experiences to help improve patient safety at all levels in the health system.

Our unique and valuable perspective complements those of care providers, health leaders, policy makers, and managers of healthcare organizations and by working in partnership we help ensure that patient safety decisions and initiatives are truly patient-centred and result in safe care.  

Program Overview :

Our vision is EVERY patient safe. To advance it, we work collaboratively with others to contribute to the healthcare system at all levels by:  

  • Sharing our experiences, observations, and perspectives 
  • Representing the patient and family perspective in committees and working groups  
  • Identifying, initiating, sharing, and leading patient safety projects

See examples of how we have partnered with the health system.
