Every year in Canadian hospitals, one in eighteen people experiences a patient safety incident. These 190,000 annual incidents lead to 24,000 deaths, cost the healthcare system $1.3 billion, and take a heavy toll on patients, families, and frontline providers

More than half of these incidents are related to surgical care. But most do not result from a lapse in technical skill; they more often involve team non-technical skills and system factors.

SafeOR™ is offered on-site at Canadian hospitals. Email for more information. 

The SafeORTM Program

The SafeOR quality initiative aims to reduce the impact of patient safety incidents. Designed by frontline healthcare providers and quality improvement experts with input from human factors consultants and patient advisors, SafeOR works to:

  • Deepen our understanding of the factors that contribute to these incidents
  • Advance the culture of safety in Canadian operating rooms
  • Build more effective OR workflows and collaboration
  • Improve healthcare quality and outcomes for patients, families and care providers
