CPSI Announces Three New Webinars

Collaboration for Transformation: Patients as Partners Driving Patient Safety Improvement Tuesday, April 16 1:00 to 2:15 PM MDT

At the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health Symposium, CPSI will host a livestream panel discussion about experiences and lessons learned from the National Patient Safety Consortium. More than 50 stakeholders — including healthcare organizations, healthcare providers, governments, professional groups, patients and families, regulators, educators, and national and provincial agencies and associations — gathered to demand action on patient safety, with patient involvement key in every aspect of the strategy and action plan. The speakers will specifically highlight medication safety efforts that have transformed both policy and practice in Canada and around the world, improving health care experiences and outcomes.

 

How safe is the care we receive? You have 3 guesses Thursday, April 25 10:00 to 11:00 AM MDT

Do you want to know about patient harm in our healthcare system? Studies show that, as soon as you know the scale of the patient safety crisis, you WILL want to know more about it.

 

Creating a Safe Space: Psychological Health and Safety of Healthcare Workers May 15, June 12, June 20, and September 12 10:00 to 11:00 AM MDT

Our guest speakers will review the guidelines within "Creating a Safe Space" and endeavours to clarify the legal privilege and professional confidentiality considerations of implementing peer-to-peer support programs for health professionals who are emotionally affected by a Patient Safety Incident
