World Patient Safety Day

Today is #WorldPatientSafetyDay.

The National Aboriginal Council of Midwives advocates for midwifery education, services, and choice of birthplace for all Aboriginal communities. Image of Aboriginal mother is from NACM

This year’s theme, Safe maternal and newborn care: Act now for safe and respectful childbirth, is to bring awareness that everyone should have a safe and respectful childbirth experience.

Many First Nations, Inuit and Métis people experience significant health disparities and barriers to accessing care, leading to an increased risk of poor maternal and newborn health outcomes. There are opportunities to improve First Nations, Inuit and Métis maternal and infant health outcomes.

Join …Patient Safety Canada and the National Aboriginal Council of Midwives today at 12:00 p.m. (ET), for a conversation on Safe and Respectful First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Maternal and Newborn Care.

Learn what healthcare providers and leaders can do to improve First Nations, Inuit and Métis safety and health outcomes. Register: https://bit.ly/2WPjcYC #SafeChildbirthForAll #PatientSafety…and #WorldPatientSafetyDay..
