Canadian Patient Safety Week

Patient Safety & Quality Healthcare

October 24 – 28, 2022

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is proud to take part in Canadian Patient Safety Week 2022, taking place from October 24 - 28.

This year’s Canadian Patient Safety Week theme is Press play on Safety Conversations focusing on safer care of older adults through safety conversations and actions. When we have safety conversations, it changes the way we think about safety. Ask questions, listen, and act. With health systems under strain, it’s more important now than ever.
