Mission & Vision
Our mission is: To make health care safer for all British Columbians by fostering a culture of safety, shared learning and continuous system improvement.
Our vision is: Safe health care for BC: No needless harm.
Who We Are
BC Patient Safety & Learning System (BC PSLS) is a web-based tool used by approximately 100,000 health care providers across BC to report and learn about patient safety events, near misses and hazards. BC PSLS has fostered improvements in patient safety and quality of care in all health care settings since its inception in 2008.
Today, we are focused on streamlining data collection and output, enhancing learning across our health care system and improving the quality of our modules and tools.
What We Do
Approximately 350 safety event reports are submitted to BC PSLS each day from across the province. This data allows us to identify safety concerns and target quality and safety improvements where they are needed most.
To date, approximately 850,000 event reports are in the BC PSLS database. Data summaries provide a rich basis for learning and improvement to over 10,000 health care leaders across BC.
