Course Description: This introductory-level webinar series provides participants with information about how to integrate concepts of patient safety into nursing curriculum. The course introduces the Canadian Patient Safety Institute’s definitions, resources and strategies that will assist in the integration of meaningful learning experiences for students in all years of their baccalaureate nursing program and clinical practice. It will also expose participants to the current research in patient safety. Participants will learn about the nature of patient safety, reflect on their existing courses, hear about innovative practices and be able to enhance the quality of existing clinical and theoretical courses.
