The Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) invites you to join two new webinars addressing several topics on patient safety in the healthcare system.
Collaboration for Transformation: Patients as Partners Driving Patient Safety Improvement
Tuesday, April 16
1:00 to 2:15 PM MDT
At the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health Symposium, CPSI will host a livestream panel discussion about experiences and lessons learned from the National Patient Safety Consortium. More than 50 stakeholders — including healthcare organizations, healthcare providers, governments, professional groups, patients and families, regulators, educators, and national and provincial agencies and associations — gathered to demand action on patient safety, with patient involvement key in every aspect of the strategy and action plan. The speakers will specifically highlight medication safety efforts that have transformed both policy and practice in Canada and around the world, improving health care experiences and outcomes.
Creating a Safe Space: Psychological Health and Safety of Healthcare Workers
May 15, June 12, June 20, and September 12
10:00 to 11:00 AM MDT
One of the first challenges many organizations confront in exploring the feasibility of a Peer-to-Peer Support Program is the ambiguity surrounding what type of legal protections may be available against disclosure of these communications in legal proceedings like malpractice actions or professional disciplinary hearings, or in employment or college disciplinary proceedings. CPSI’s guest speakers will review the guidelines within "Creating a Safe Space" and endeavours to clarify the legal privilege and professional confidentiality considerations of implementing peer-to-peer support programs for health professionals who are emotionally affected by a Patient Safety Incident.
