Please join us on Saturday, April 13th, 2013 for a special symposium

To Err is Human: What Every Patient Should Know About Medical Errors

Conference 8:30am – 4:15pm 

Light breakfast and refreshments will be provided

Detailed agenda to follow

The Conference Centre at the Ontario Bar Association | 20 Toronto Street, 2nd Floor | Toronto, ON M5C 2B8

Join patients, family caregivers, lawyers, and health care providers at the Ontario Bar Association for an event that will explore the nature of medical errors and how patients can deal with them.

The event will draw on a range of expertise featuring speakers with experience in malpractice law, medical science, and risk management.  Some of the topics to be addressed include: the size and scope of the problem of medical errors in Canada, the media’s role in educating about such mishaps, how courts have dealt with them, what makes for a successful lawsuit if litigation ensues, and the experience of patients who have responded to medical errors. The Patients’ Association’s Dr. Sholom Glouberman will also be delivering a talk on Complaints Mechanisms for Patients Across Canada.

We believe that patients and family caregivers should feel knowledgeable and empowered in their interactions with the health care system. We are not a complaints organization; nor are we interested in pitting patients against professionals. We hope this will conference will give patients some insight to the often unclear realm of medical errors and what can be done about them.

This event is organized and hosted by Oakley & Oakley and the Patients' Association of Canada.
