A resource to help make care safer with patients/families as partners.
We all intend to provide the best possible care for the best possible outcomes for our patients, clients and residents, but sometimes a patient may be inadvertently harmed. During this webinar, we introduce you to a resource designed to provide an integrated set of practical strategies and resources related to patient safety and incident management in any health-care setting. The needs of patients/families are threaded throughout the webinar as well as opportunities to engage them as partners in care.
The goal of the session is to help you respond with more confidence to incidents and take action to make care safer not only in your practice, but also across the profession. Click here to review the Patient Safety and Incident Management toolkit.
