The World Health Organization has declared September 17 as the first World Patient Safety Day. Globally, 134 million adverse events contribute to 2.6 million deaths each year due to unsafe care. At 28,000 deaths per year in Canada, patient harm ranks third in mortality after cancer and heart disease.
CAE Healthcare, in collaboration with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI), Patients for Patient Safety Canada, and Health Standards Organization (HSO), invites you to commemorate the first World Patient Safety Day by attending a featured screening of To Err is Human. This patient safety documentary interviews healthcare leaders, highlights real-world efforts toward safer patient care, and explores one family’s compelling journey from victimhood to empowerment. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with senior healthcare leaders.
