to raising awareness about patient safety and reducing medical errors
through advocacy, education and support.
We provide support to patients and
families who have experienced medical errors or adverse events

We educate the community about quality
healthcare practice so they may become knowledgeable, confident
and active participants in their healthcare experience.
We assist in reducing misunderstandings
between patients and healthcare providers and provide a platform
for effective communication and working partnerships whereby the
community works with healthcare providers and institutions to proactively
contribute to and advocate for safe quality care.
