What we do, together

What we do, together

We promise to work with you to deliver measurable, widespread and lasting improvement in patient safety and all the dimensions of healthcare excellence. As we develop a new strategy for Healthcare Excellence Canada, we look forward to continuing to talk to people across the country to explore their priorities and how we can work together.

In the meantime, many familiar CPSI and CFHI programs will continue in 2021 and 2022 as new programs are rolled out. Across our work, we will seek to emphasize equity and inclusion, patient, family and caregiver partnership, as well as supporting the people who work in healthcare.

Here are some of the ways we can work together this year:

  • Finding and promoting innovators and innovations: Help us scout innovations that can move the dial on quality and safety.
  • Growing proven innovations and safety interventions: Our programs, webinars and knowledge products will help you put the best evidence and practices into action, measure the difference it makes and then build on your success.
  • Building capabilities: Fellowships, courses and programs for leaders and teams at all levels will build your skills and knowledge enabling improvement in your organization and the healthcare system.
  • Catalyzing policy change: Through policy guidance and other products and opportunities we can work together to shape the future of patient safety and quality.
  • Bringing people together: Partnerships, networks, alliances – whatever you want to call them – we convene people to share, learn and implement better ways of working.
  • Leading campaigns: Together we can increase awareness of patient safety and approaches that promote improvement in safety and quality.
