On May 26, 2014, MIPS hosted Growing The Legacy, a public educational event to recognize MIPS’ 10 years of service to Manitobans in the field of patient safety. Approximately 125 people attended in person at the St. Boniface Hospital Research Centre and others joined across Manitoba at 12 MB Telehealth sites.

The event featured three well-known and respected leaders in their fields: The Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair, CBC Radio’s Terry MacLeod, and Hugh MacLeod, the CEO of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute.

The Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair started the event with a profound presentation about his experiences conducting the Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Inquest, studying the deaths of twelve children in the pediatric cardiac surgery program of Winnipeg’s Health Sciences Centre in 1994. CBC Radio’s Terry MacLeod shared his personal healthcare experiences and the poignant experience of his close personal friend. Completing the afternoon’s speakers was Hugh MacLeod, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute’s CEO. Hugh has a work record that demonstrates commitment to systems productivity improvement and a passion for leadership development. Hugh shared his personal story as well as his knowledge of trends that are shaping patient safety initiatives nationally and internationally. Following the presentation the audience participated with questions and comments.

The 2 hour event can be viewed at or order a DVD from MIPS.
