Established by Health Canada in 2003, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) works with governments, health organisations, leaders and healthcare providers to inspire extraordinary improvement in patient safety and quality. SHIFT to Safety is a major shift to empower staff with the tools and information they need to keep patients safe, at any level.
Through SHIFT to Safety, the CPSI will help:
- Patients and their families shift to advocate for their healthcare safety.
- Healthcare providers shift to prioritise safety when caring for patients.
- Leaders in healthcare organisations shift to create a positive patient safety culture.
SHIFT to Safety promotes a positive, safe healthcare experience for patients, providers, and leaders in healthcare organisations. The tools and resources empower everyone to understand how to make safety a priority while navigating the healthcare system.
