Canadian Patient Safety Week (CPSW) is an annual campaign that began in 2005 to inspire improvement in patient safety and quality. This initiative is now part of the newly amalgamated Healthcare Excellence Canada, an organization which works with patients and other partners to deliver lasting improvement in patient safety and experience, work life of healthcare providers, value for money and the health of everyone in Canada.
On November 30, 2020, IQMH and Accreditation Canada moved forward with their planned integration by welcoming the IQMH Centre for Accreditation to the Accreditation Canada family.
