National Consortium

ASK LISTEN TALK

In 2014, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute brought together key partners in Canadian healthcare and established the National Patient Safety Consortium to drive a shared action plan for safer healthcare.

The key themes are patient voice; leadership; measurement; and communication.

The National Integrated Patient Safety Strategy, is the overarching strategic goal, and will provide a framework and leadership for identifying priorities. A mechanism for the Canadian Patient Safety Institute to achieve this strategic goal was to convene a National Patient Safety Consortium to advance and Integrated Patient Safety Action Plan. Bringing together key partners in Canadian healthcare to focus on some of the biggest patient safety challenges, and engaging them to align the work they are doing with some common goals, will provide the synergy and coordination needed to accelerate the pace of patient safety improvement.

The Canadian Patient Safety Institute has identified four initial priority areas of focus, they are:

1. Medication safety

2. Surgical care safety

3. Infection prevention and control

4. Home care safety

5. Patient Safety Education
