Special Event

October 28th to November 1st is Canadian Patient Safety Week. This year the focus is on Medication Safety, with the goal of reducing medication errors across Canada.  The theme, Not All Meds Get Along, prompts patients and healthcare professionals to seek medication reviews for at-risk populations.  

Should you ask for a medication review? 

  • Are you, or is someone you know, on five or more medications?
  • Have you, or someone you know, been recently discharged from the hospital?
  • Are you concerned about the side effects you're experiencing or seeing in a loved one?

Note that patients over the age of 65 are at higher risk from medication complications. #NotAllMedsGetAlong
