About Canadian Patient Safety Week

The Canadian Patient Safety Institute launched Canadian Patient Safety Week as a national annual campaign in 2005 as part of its mandate to build and advance a safer health system for Canadians. The goal is to increase awareness of patient safety issues and share information about best practices in patient safety. The theme: Ask. Listen. Talk – promotes the importance of communication between and among patients, clients, consumers and providers and applies to all healthcare settings and sectors.
