Jones is proud to join the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) and many other healthcare organizations across the country to promote safe patient care during Canadian Patient Safety Week (CPSW), which takes place from October 30 to November 3 this year.
CPSW is a national, annual campaign that started in 2005 to inspire improvement in patient safety and quality by increasing awareness and sharing best practices with healthcare providers, patients and their families. Thousands of organizations, including Jones, will take part by hosting events and activities related to patient safety. Working together, we can help spread the message to “Ask. Listen. Talk.”
Our customers know patient and medication safety are at the heart of our business, and we’re proud to offer an extensive range of adherence packaging solutions that can help patients take the right medications at the right time. In keeping with CPSW’s theme of, “5 Questions to Ask About Your Medications” this year, be sure to ask your pharmacist about the best compliance packaging options for you.
Looking to get involved with CPSW? Check out the CPSI website for a range of new material this year, including a Question Your Meds contest (bonus – you could win a prize!), Medication Safety quiz for both patients and healthcare providers to test your knowledge, patient and provider videos, and the PATIENT podcast that uncovers how people are trying to change the healthcare system from the inside out.
