How safe is your care? Building capacity for patient safety in partnership with providers, patients and essential care partners
How safe is your care? Building capacity for patient safety in partnership with providers, patients and essential care partners.
- Anne MacLaurin, Senior Program Lead, Healthcare Excellence Canada
- Maaike Asselbergs, Patients for Patient Safety Canada.
Improving patient safety has been a priority for more than 20 years, yet harm continues to occur an unacceptable rate. To enable safe care, we must rethink our approach. The Measuring and Monitoring of Safety (2013, Vincent, Burnett and Carthey) offers a broader, dynamic approach for creating and sustaining safer care, in which patient partnerships are integral. This session prepared and delivered in partnership with patients, will explore the questions “how safe is your care?” and “what makes you feel safe?” and illustrate actions patients, carers, healthcare providers and leaders can take to support safety though inquiry and conversations.
