Patient Safety Conference

Sun Country Health Region (SCHR) hosted its fourth annual Patient Safety Conference this week at McKenna Hall in Weyburn.

This annual event is always well attended and is an important event for SCHR. Improving patient safety is one of the Region’s top priorities.

This year’s theme was All for One, Patients First.

Speakers included Donna Davis, (a public member of the SCHR Patient Safety Committee and a national patient safety advocate); Dr. Mark Wahba, Emergency Room Physician, Saskatoon Health Region, who discussed bias in decision-making in health care and Jerry Bell, RN, from Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region, who discussed the role of attitude and the opportunities to learn from adverse events in the health care system. 

The conference included displays of patient safety initiatives in the Region, as well as a panel discussing the fall prevention initiative in the Region for long term care residents, home care clients, and the community.

About 200 staff members from facilities and programs around the Region attended the conference.
