CHCA on the Issues - Am I Safe?

Am I Safe? 

Supporting conversations about patient safety in the home

 

As the setting of care shifts from acute care to the home, the acuity and complexity of patients receiving care in the home has increased. The element of risk and potential for adverse events increases as more complex care is provided in an unpredictable and / or inconsistent home setting.

 

Safety conversations must take place often and involve many health care providers across various settings of care.


Am I Safe? Scan


Environmental Scan

An environmental scan and E-Delphi consultation to identify tools and resources available in Canada that could help guide conversations about patient risk among providers, patients and families in the context of care provision in the home setting.

Patients and their carers are the one constant between providers and across care settings. Empowering patients and carers to engage health care providers in conversations and become vested parties in their own safety is critical. This approach will ensure the conversations about patient safety are a priority and always take place no matter where or who is providing care.
