Canadian Patient Safety Week

September 29 - October 4, 2008

Knowledge is the Best Medicine. Ask. Talk. Listen.

Canadian Patient Safety Week is Canada's only national campaign to raise awareness of patient safety and related programs and initiatives. The week was founded in 2005 and is now an annual event to keep the issue of patient safety foremost in the minds of Canadians. It is sponsored by the Canadian Patient Safety Institute as part of its national mandate to build and advance a safer healthcare system for Canadians.

The theme of this year's Canadian Patient Safety Week is "Knowledge Is the Best Medicine. Ask. Talk. Listen." The theme is based on a key element in quality healthcare - knowledge sharing - that is essential to all healthcare settings. By knowledge sharing communication between patients, healthcare providers, families and caregivers can be improved.
