Indigenous Perspectives on Patient Safety
November 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
A webinar designed with Indigenous leaders and patient partners
The goal of this virtual discussion is to expand our understanding how people from Indigenous communities experience patient safety.
After hearing the perspectives of patients, providers and leaders from Indigenous communities on how they perceive safety and what solutions are/ can be implemented, we will leave the session with at least one practical idea for engaging all patients, families and/or the public in improving patient safety.
