Birthday-PSLS-AnimatedThis week marks the one-year anniversary of our blog!

It’s hard to believe, but one year ago we launched this platform as a way to showcase your quality and safety initiatives and provide expert insight on patient safety topics.

This past year, we’ve more than doubled our visitor count compared to the first six months, reaching nearly 13,000 visitors. Our audience stretches across Canada and into the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and South America. We received accolades for our unique contribution to the national patient safety conversation and we recently gave the blog an overhaul to keep the site modern and interesting.

In the months to come, we’ll continue to broaden the reach of your blog stories and offer you an even greater variety of interesting and relevant posts.
