Of those 138,000 hospitalizations, 30,000 involved more than one form of harm.

CQIP participant discusses HIV project

HQC Posted on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 2:00 PM

The improvement idea is to increase HIV testing of patients at all points of contact in our region.

Safety Alert/Stop the Line, which is coordinated out of the Health Quality Council, is intended to support Saskatchewan’s health system in achieving the goal of zero harm to patients and staff by March 2020.
