BC Patient Safety & Learning System (BCPSLS) is a web-based tool used by healthcare professionals across British Columbia to report and learn from adverse events, good catches (near misses), and hazards that occur in healthcare settings. BCPSLS is in use in all care settings in the province and is the only province-wide system of its kind in Canada. Our data provides comprehensive patient safety information to healthcare leaders and managers so they can identify safety concerns, promote a culture of safety, and encourage continuous learning – all in support of our vision to improve patient safety and quality of care in the province of BC.
BCPSLS Central Office is located in Vancouver and provides technical and system support, strategic guidance, communications, and training tools to all users. For more information about BCPSLS please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
