The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is participating in a collaborative project meant to increase patient safety.

The Global Patient Safety Alert project will contain indexed summaries and links to more than 800 patient safety advisories, alerts and recommendations resulting from investigations into adverse events or critical incidents.

The WRHA is the only jurisdiction in Canada taking part in the partnership project, joining 22 other organizations around around the world, including the World Health Organization.

“Winnipeg has long been recognized as a national leader in the area of patient safety,” said WRHA President and CEO Arlene Wilgosh. “We are honoured to have been asked to partner with these numerous prestigious organizations to further the patient safety effort.”
