Canadian Patient Safety Week

Canadian Patient Safety Week is October 29 – November 2, 2018

The Canadian Patient Safety Institute invites all Canadians – the public, providers and leaders – to become involved in making patient safety a priority.

The focus for 2018 is Medication Safety, with the goal of reducing medication errors across Canada. This year’s theme is Not All Meds Get Along, prompting patients and healthcare professionals to seek medication reviews for at-risk populations.

Whether you are a member of the public, a healthcare provider, or leader, there are ways you can help prevent harm and promote medication safety.
