Your Inner Voice Can Save Lives

September 2019

The patient voice is powerful.

Shockingly, preventable harm in healthcare is the third leading cause of death in Canada. Silence plays a major role.

Silence must be broken between patients and providers, the public and policymakers in efforts to reduce patient harm.

This year, Conquer Silence is the theme for Canadian Patient Safety Week Oct 28 to Nov 1.
