Safety at Home: A Pan-Canadian Home Care Study

The report is the result of a collaborative study between The Canadian Patient Safety Institute, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Institutes of Health Services and Policy Research (IHSPR), The Change Foundation, and the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI).  

The study examined the reasons for harmful incidents, determined the impact on families and clients and made suggestions on how to make home care safer.

The research team in collaboration with CPSI and national partners such as Canadian Home Care Association, Accreditation Canada, and Victoria Order of Nurses will be developing tools and resources for various audiences including clients, caregivers, Home Care organizations, and policy makers.
