Canadian Patient Safety Week (CPSW)

Canadian Patient Safety Week

Date: October 27-31

The Canadian national annual campaign to inspire extraordinary improvement in patient safety and quality. CPSW is relevant to anyone who engages with our healthcare system: providers, patients, and citizens. This year’s theme is on hand hygiene and infection control, and UT IHI is promoting this through:

  • Free Giveaways: During the last week of October, catch us at King’s College Circle and get FREE stuff – including resources on proper hand hygiene, magazines, buttons, and hand sanitizer!
  • Photo Contest: How would you promote proper hand hygiene to students? Snap a picture of how you would do it and post it on our UT IHI Open School Facebook group. Submit it by the end of CPSW (Halloween!), and those involved with the most creative photo will WIN A PRIZE!

Please join the UT IHI Open School Facebook page for more updates. Hope to catch you during Canadian Patient Safety Week!
