PSHSA recognizes Canadian Patient Safety Week, October 31-November 4
Healthcare workers are one of the highest risk groups for work-related injuries and illness in Ontario and across Canada. There is a strong correlation between worker health and safety and patient safety; healthy workers are more productive, better focused, and less prone to errors.
PSHSA recognizes Canadian Patient Safety Week (October 31-November 4), an annual campaign organized by the Canadian Patient Safety Institute to create awareness and improvement in patient safety and quality.
For more information on Canadian Patient Safety Week, please visit www.asklistentalk.ca and check out PSHSA’s Healthy Work Environments page for valuable resources and discussion on improving health and safety in Ontario’s healthcare system.
