“She was tremendous. Loved that she used Pulse tools!!”

“I learned so much from this session”

“My clients clearly view an appointment with their provider differently than I do. Thank you for sharing your perspective!”

Something new I learned: “How to talk to clients and create an awareness for them and questions to ask”

Something new I learned:  “Lack of training for physicians and staff on disabilities - I just assumed they would learn about that as part of medical training”

Something new I learned:  “I learned that one of the signs can be mental decline which was a big surprise to me”

Something new I learned:  “Globally this is major - hygiene is critical - which is so basic”

Something new I learned:  “I didn't realize that ~40% of people have experienced or know someone who has experienced a medical error”

Something new I learned:  “Nearly 1 out of 10 people hospitalized in 2018 were discharged with some type of illness or issue brought on by their hospitalization and how I need to increase my advocacy efforts surrounding helping to decrease avoidable suffering!”

Something new I learned: The numbers coming from the general public about their perceptions and experiences of medical errors was eye opening. So was the discussion of Emotional harm in the context of patient safety”

Something new I learned: To work with both doctor and pharmacist in medication management.”

Something new I learned:  Bit more about the Canadian health system”

Something new I learned:1/9 emergency room visits for seniors are caused by (legal) drug interactions”

Something new I learned: “Canadian system is different and interesting to see insights”

Something new I learned:  Drug interactions could be the culprit for client altered state

Something new I learned: “How dangerous it is to be prescribed medication by multiple providers -- there is no one there to check interactions or duplications!”

The Current Landscape of Patient Safety: Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Going will be packed with information and dynamic discussions from expert presenters.

Since the 1999 release of the Institute of Medicine’s report, To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System, safe medical care has been spotlighted as a priority in the nation’s healthcare systems. Even before that, Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy worked to improve patient outcomes.

We do this by:

  • Encouraging people to be better prepared as patients and advocates
  • Understanding how medical errors happen and help avoid them
  • Understanding how patient and family engagement can help prevent unplanned outcomes of care.

Join us as we explore the potential of the patient safety movement in the years to come and how to navigate the future in our roles as patients and advocates.
