Accreditation Canada. (2013). Safety in Canadian health care organizations: A focus on transitions in care and Required Organizational Practices. Ottawa, ON: Accreditation Canada.

“The Accreditation Canada standards and patient safety goals—the Required Organizational Practices—identify the importance of communication and transfer of information. This year’s Canadian Health Accreditation Report highlights how Canadian health care organizations are performing relative to care transitions—handovers at shift changes, client transfers, discharges, and referrals to other health services providers—which play a critical role in providing safe and quality health care. The second part of this year’s report showcases areas of excellence achieved by Canadian health care organizations and opportunities for improvement relative to the Accreditation Canada Required Organizational Practices—over the past years and moving forward.”
