The Queen's Joanna Briggs Collaboration for Patient Safety celebrated its official launch on December 3rd, 2009. A collaborative research team led by Queen’s University’s School of Nursing has been awarded $1 million to investigate ways to resolve patient safety and risk issues in the Canadian health-care system. The five-year funding, from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, will enable researchers from Queen’s Joanna Briggs Collaboration (QJBC) to determine the best, evidence-based nursing practices to provide people in both clinical and community care settings with safe, reliable health care.
