Presented by Donna Davis, Co-chair, Patients for Patient Safety Canada
Patients for Patient Safety Canada (PFPSC) is a patient-led national organization committed to bring the perspective of patients and families to healthcare organizations and systems engaged in safety improvement. PFPSC is comprised of volunteers across Canada who, as patients with safety-related experiences, are bringing their perspectives to a forum in order to
- provide a collective credible voice reflective of diverse perspectives for patients across Canada
- promote best/leading practices in patient centered care and patient safety
- advocate for the patients perspectives in all healthcare agendas
- work collaboratively with patients, healthcare providers, health organizations and other agencies to accelerate efforts aimed at improving patient safety.
