From October 23 –27, IQMH recognizes Canadian Patient Safety Week to inspire improvements in health care safety and quality. Healthcare Excellence Canada collaborates with patients and partners, and leads this annual campaign to advance improvements and changes to enable everyone in Canada to have safe, effective, and high-quality health care.
With the Health Standards Organization’s (HSO) continued development of relationships and partnerships, the organization has supported the recent launch of Healthcare Excellence Canada’s (HEC) Workforce Innovation Challenge. The challenge is a common commitment between the two organizations to improve patient and workforce safety and quality.
Canadian Patient Safety Week (CPSW) is an annual campaign that began in 2005 to inspire improvement in patient safety and quality. This initiative is now part of the newly amalgamated Healthcare Excellence Canada, an organization which works with patients and other partners to deliver lasting improvement in patient safety and experience, work life of healthcare providers, value for money and the health of everyone in Canada.
