Canadian Patient Safety Week is November 1-5, 2010.


You can register for FREE with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute to receive a package of promotional items:  


Canadian Patient Safety Week increases awareness of patient safety issues and aims to share information about best practices in patient safety with healthcare providers, patients and their families. The theme of Canadian Patient Safety Week – Ask. Listen. Talk. – promotes the importance of communication between and among patients, clients, consumers and providers and applies to all healthcare settings and sectors. 


The Manitoba Institute for Patient Safety will also be launching videos during Canadian Patient Safety Week and will have many resources for Manitobans.  Watch their It’s Safe to Ask website for more information:
