Safer Healthcare Now! Getting Started Kit

Available in English and French. This kit is aimed at improving safety of the healthcare system. Produced by Safer Healthcare Now!  in partnership with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) and the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO), this resource promotes quality improvement methods and integration of evidence in practice.

This Getting Started Kit (GSK) has been written to help engage your interdisciplinary teams in a dynamic approach for improving quality and safety while providing a basis for getting started. This Getting Started Kit represents the most current evidence, knowledge and practice, as of the date of publication and includes what has been learned since the first kit was released in 2010. We remain open to working consultatively on updating the content, as more evidence emerges, as together we make healthcare safer in Canada.
