Leading practices in patient engagement for patient safety
HealthCareCAN, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, and Health Standards Organization, with support from Patients for Patient Safety Canada, have partnered to develop a new recognition program that aims to identify, celebrate and disseminate leading practices in patient engagement for patient safety.
As part of this new recognition program, we are looking for outstanding leading practices in engaging patients as partners in patient safety improvements that have led to measurable results and would greatly appreciate your assistance identifying these great initiatives.
From the submissions, we would like to provide two teams, consisting of a staff member and a patient partner, the opportunity to present their successes and lessons learned as part of a concurrent session at the National Health Leadership Conference (NHLC) in Saint John’s Newfoundland in June. All travel expenses and full registration to NHLC for the two teams will be paid for. In addition, up to 15 teams will be formally identified and celebrated as leading practices and added to HSO’s leading practices database.
If you know of any teams that should be recognized for their innovation and success, we would like to know about them so we can help celebrate them and spread knowledge.
The deadline to submit nominations is March 16th.
If you are a HealthCareCAN member and have not yet received the nomination invite by email, please contact Jessica Giesbrecht, our Director of Quality, Performance & Evaluation: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will contact the teams for further discussion and decisions will be made by mid-April at which time selected teams will be notified and thereafter the identified teams will be announced.
