Every Manitoban is or will access health services at some point in their lives – #weareallpatients.
The Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) tells us that 28,000 of Canadians die from preventable harm when receiving care, every single year. Patient safety incidents the third leading cause of death in Canada, behind cancer and heart disease. One in three Canadians has had patient harm affect themselves or a loved one.
At MIPS, we continue to believe that everyone is responsible for patient safety. How can you meet this responsibility?
Be involved for better outcomes. #advocateforyourself
Review the Resources for Canadian Patient Safety Week 2020 list to find resources and tools to promote patient safety, with our self-advocacy resources highlighted to help you identify key resources to help patients be more involved in their healthcare.
