Patient Advisor Training: Now and Next

Designed by patient/family champions for champions and providers this interactive webinar is offered by Patients for Patient Safety Canada. The term patient safety champion includes any individual that volunteers as a patient/family representative in programs, groups, networks and/or organizations working to improve quality and safety in health care at any system level. The session is designed to allow for conversation among participants, so be prepared to contribute to the dialogue verbally or via chat.
