In 2009, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) released The Safety Competencies, a framework that identifies knowledge, skills and attitudes required for all health professions.

Areas of focus for this year’s conference include effective communication and how interprofessional teamwork contributes to a culture of patient safety, as well as balancing risk versus autonomy, recognizing, responding and managing safety risks.

Round table discussion has been built into the program throughout the day to facilitate active dialogue amongst participants while providing opportunity to consider learnings from the day to individual practice settings.
