Event description


Both within Canada, and around the world, advances are being made in how radiation treatment programs identify, classify and report incidents and then use the collected data to reduce incident propogation and improve patient and staff safety. This online program will teach attendees how to effectively investigate local incidents using the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) guidelines, identify trends through local and pan-Canadian incident analysis and inform programmatic change with the aim of improving overall patient care and outcomes.

This accredited, seven-week online course, coordinated by CPQR, will include weekly lectures and a series of case-based assignments totalling 20 hours of course work. It will provide a foundation for the rigorous and harmonized investigation and reporting of radiation treatment incidents at the local, regional and national level.

Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to:

  • Create and implement an incident learning process using strategies for managing change and translating knowledge

  • Employ the CPSI comprehensive incident investigation guidelines to analyze and investigate no/low-harm and complex/complicated incidents

  • Classify and report events using the CPQR/CIHI National System for Incident Reporting in Radiation Treatment (NSIR-RT)
