2010 Patient Safety Symposium: Furthering Parent Involvement in Patient Safety

June 10th I spoke with parents Denise Clayton and Jane Ford at the 6th Annual Patient Safety Symposium about expanding parent participation in patient safety. I was asked to join the Partners in Patient Safety Committee which has an outstanding record of joint staff and parent work on safety initiatives. One of my particular interests is the Required Organizational Practise of Accreditation Canada related to "Client and Family Role In Safety" (see page 9 of the ROP document), specifically, that "Staff uses written and verbal approaches to inform and educate clients about their role in promoting safety".
