    Special Episode / Canadian Patient Safety Week

    In this episode of PATIENT, we talk about Canada’s silent healthcare epidemic, which claims 28,000 lives every year. We want to teach Canadians that if something looks wrong, feels wrong, or is wrong – we need to speak up, in the moment. Robin McGee from Patients for Patient Safety Canada, Nurse Abigail Hain and CPSI CEO Chris Power reveal that by conquering silence, we can begin to work together to solve the healthcare issues we face.

Irritating background music

The content is great. But the background music is irritating. I want to hear the content, not music. If I want music I don't want someone talking over it. Please! One or the other.
