Canadian Patient Safety Week: Straight Talk From Patient Safety Advocates Among Us
Canadian Patient Safety Week starts today and I thought it would be a good time to share videos about patient safety issues in our health care system. I don’t mean the usual wash your hands message directed at our health care providers. What I mean is straight talk about some of the underlying problems in Canadian health care and what patients and their families can do about them.
I recently travelled to Manitoba to meet with individuals whose experiences with our health care system have united them on a path for driving change and making improvements that will help other patients and their families.
Keep watching the site for new videos from patient safety advocates among us.
Today’s video clips feature Leslie Worthington and her sister Val Lee providing some tips for patients and families affected by medical error. You can read more about their story here .
