Patient Safety Website Up and Running

by John McKiggan

The Canadian Patient Safety Institute, a non-profit organization, has created a new website designed to provide the public and health care providers with patient safety information from around the world.

The website is located at

The goal of the website is to provide access to safety advisories, alerts and other resources as well as to allow users to share information to help enhance patient care and protection.

The CEO of the Patient Safety Institute, Hugh McLeod stated:

“In a meeting with the VP of a busy hospital, I asked what is the one tool we could provide you with that would make access to patient safety information easier. Her answer to me was to have access to one website that would provide all information you need to know about hand hygiene, medication safety or any other patient safety and quality focus. We took the idea to heart and have spent the last 7 months building the improving care search centre.”

This is a tremendous initiative and I would urge everybody to login to and bookmark the Patient Safety Institute website.
