The Case for Investing in Patient Safety in Canada.
Medical error and patient harm affect individuals and organizations around the world. This report estimates that around 400,000 annual cases of safety incidents will occur in Canada in the next 30 years, as well as the potential costs and lost productivity resulting from these events. Highlighted models for improvement include the United States Partnership for Patients initiative and efforts in the Netherlands, which has one of the lowest patient harm rates in the world.
