Celebrate Canadian Patient Safety Week

Conquer Silence

CSHP is proud to take part in Canadian Patient Safety Week 2019, taking place from October 28th to November 1st. Along with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI), we’re spreading the mission to #ConquerSilence. We are helping CPSI with its mission of providing extraordinary improvements in patient safety.

This year’s Canadian Patient Safety Week theme is #ConquerSilence, prompting patients and healthcare professionals to battle systemic silence in our collective efforts to reduce patient harm. This enemy exists between patients and providers, between colleagues in healthcare facilities, between administrators in different regions, and between the public and policymakers.

To keep you engaged in this year’s Canadian Patient Safety Week, CPSI is offering interactive and exciting activities for everyone. These include sharing your story about preventable healthcare harm on the new conquersilence.ca website along with a #ConquerSilence webinar. There will be a second webinar on mandatory reporting, and a new episode of the award-winning PATIENT podcast. Follow and use #ConquerSilence to stay-up-date for the entire campaign.
We are proud to participate in Canadian Patient Safety Week with you. Together, we can make this year’s event a success.
