We still have work to do! Today in Canada, every 17 minutes someone dies in a hospital from an adverse event. The Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) was established as the result of a rallying cry led by dedicated individuals working within the healthcare system that couldn’t experience one more incident of a patient getting harmed. In December 2003, Health Canada officially created and announced funding for CPSI with a mandate to provide national leadership on developing evidence based tools and resources to educate and inspire safer care. CPSI the only national organization solely dedicated to reducing preventable harm and improving the safety of healthcare. This is accomplished by a focus on preventing harm from happening, responding to harm when it does happen and learning from harm so that it doesn’t happen again. CPSI has a Patient Safety Improvement Lead position available for someone passionate about improving our healthcare system.
