Family invitation to SickKids Patient Safety Symposium which includes celebrated family centered care adviser Juliette Schlucter presenting and facilitating a breakout

On Monday June 25th, 2012 SickKids will host their 8th Annual Paediatric Patient Safety Symposium. As partners in patient safety, our families are integral to advancing patient safety and quality and we extend an open invitation to all family members who would like to attend for the day (or parts of the day).

This year in particular, we are extremely proud to have the patient/family experience represented in our symposium agenda with our guest speaker Juliette Schlucter, ran internationally recognized speaker and expert on child- and family-centred care. Juliette will lead the breakout session "Patient/Family Engagement: Changing Quality, Safety and the Patient Experience" from 11:00-11:45 (Room TBD) and a plenary session she has titled " Shall We Dance: The Partnership between Patients, Families, and Professionals to Advance Safety, Quality and the Patient Experience" from 2:45-3:30 in the Hollywood Theatre. The cost to families has been waived for this event but we do ask that you register online or email Rita Damignani at rita.damignani AT .

We hope you can join us!

Then from 4:30-6:30 pm, Juliette will facilitate a workshop for the Family Centred Care Advisory Council and any hospital committees with patient/family representation to explore how families and staff can be most effective in advancing patient and family care and advisory. Juliette has requested workshop attendees prepare a list of specific needs, challenges, concerns, questions and opportunities. Please RSVP to Sarah McBain, Manager of the Family Centre at 416-813-6528 or by email at sarah.mcbain AT if you would like to attend.
