Report on Measuring Patient Harm in Canadian Hospitals Distributed on behalf of CIHI and CPSI

The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) and the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) are pleased to announce the release of the report Measuring Patient Harm in Canadian Hospitals. This report introduces work that CIHI and CPSI undertook to develop a new measure of hospital harm (i.e., harm that occurs to patients while in hospital) that is linked to evidence-informed practices to reduce the occurrence of these patient safety events.
