HealthPRO Recognizes Canadian Patient Safety Week: October 30-November 3

Canadian Patient Safety Week (CPSW) is a national, annual campaign started by the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) in 2005 to inspire extraordinary improvement in patient safety and quality throughout the healthcare system. This year’s CPSW campaign is focused on medication safety, specifically, highlighting 5 Questions to Ask About your Medications when you see your doctor, nurse or pharmacist.

HealthPRO is committed to patient safety and has spearheaded several safe medication management initiatives including reinforcing the use of GS1 barcodes through contracting and implementing a national protocol to help hospitals mitigate potential medication errors related to pharmaceutical product changes.
