CAPHC is proud to support Canadian Patient Safety Week, October 27 - 31, 2014

We are celebrating safe care and the Canadian Patient Safety Institute’s 10th anniversary! 



The Canadian Association of Paediatric Health Centres (CAPHC) is proud to endorse Canadian Patient Safety Week, October 27th to 31st, 2014. Along with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI), we’re spreading the message of ASK. LISTEN. TALK. 


CPSI invites you to join us in creating a safer healthcare system for all Canadians by bringing awareness to the importance of patient safety. Each person’s involvement helps to make the Canadian healthcare system safer.  For 10 years, organizations such as (insert organization name here) have helped CPSI live its mission of inspiring extraordinary improvement in patient safety. Together, we’re joining CPSI to celebrate the providers, patients and families who have made healthcare safer in Canada.
