Safer Together - Improving Patient Safety in Care Transitions

Quality & Patient Safery Rounds Ontario logo

Patient and caregiver experiences indicate that when care transitions are not managed well, patients may suffer harm from errors and delays in care.  This can contribute and negatively affect patients’ and caregiver experiences.   

We invite you to join us for this knowledge sharing session which will provide participants with an understanding of some of the root causes and issues affecting transitions in care in hospital and primary care settings, as well as best practices to incorporate into clinical settings to improve transitions of care for patients and their care partners.   

At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants will be able to:   

  • Gain insight on some of the issues related to patients transitioning between different care settings and different health care providers and teams

  • Reflect on lessons learned from shared examples and how they can be applied to improve patient safety within your own organization

  • Learn about practical strategies and explore best-practices that have successfully improved patient safety in transitions of care
