Goals of my advocacy:

To ensure every Canadian province and Territory records medication incidents, and that learning is gleaned, shared and acted upon at all levels. To spread this message across the globe so that incident recording helps achieve the goal of the World Health Organization’s Medication without Harm Global Patient Safety Challenge.To share Andrew’s legacy in order to motivate and inspire health care professionals to make quality improvements in their daily practice.To teach pharmacy students the value and importance of a culture of safety, community and collaboration so that it can be deeply embedded in their daily practice from the very moment they go into a pharmacy.
