July 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


A webinar designed and facilitated by patient partners

When things go from bad to worse, everyone has a role to play to ensure patient safety.

Family members are a vital part of the healthcare team and are often best positioned to recognize the sometimes subtle, yet very important changes in their loved one’s condition that may indicate deterioration. You may not know WHAT is wrong, but you know something just isn’t right. Empower yourself and your loved ones with information and resources to help you recognize the signs of deteriorating patient condition and effectively discuss your concerns with the healthcare provider.

Leave this webinar, offered by Patients for Patient Safety Canada, with at least one practical idea for engaging patients, families or the public in making care safer. The focus of this interactive session is to:

  • Understand the basics of the deteriorating patient condition
  • What to do if you think someone’s condition is deteriorating

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
