On Monday, November 9, the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME), in partnership with KPMG, hosted the launch of Professor Ross Baker’s latest report on Patient Safety.
Beyond the Quick Fix: Strategies for Improving Patient Safety examines what progress has been made in the ten years since the Canadian Adverse Events Study (CAES). The CAES, authored by Professor Baker, Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QIPS) Program Director, and colleagues, identified significant patient safety issues in Canadian hospitals. The report outlines Professor Baker’s recommendations for creating sustainable improvements in patient safety.
