Program overview :

Join us in recognizing 15 years of Patients improving patient safety  

Towards EVERY PATIENT SAFE – what difference do patients make? 

Think back to 2006 and recall what you knew about patient safety, and patients as partners in safety. Now, pause for a second to reflect on where we are now, in 2021. Then, imagine what you want patient safety to look like in 15 years – 2036 to be specific.

Join us in exploring how patients, families and communities have helped shape patient safety in the past 15 years, and contribute your thoughts on how we can accelerate safety efforts together in the next 15 years. In celebration of Patients for Patient Safety Canada's 15th anniversary, we will share our journey so far, our successes, and our dream:  "EVERY PATIENT SAFE".
