Partners in patient safety

Patient safety is a collective responsibility that involves partnership and support from other stakeholders and the public.

CNO partners with multiple stakeholders who have different roles in the nursing profession.  Together we support safe nursing practice, and we each have a role in supporting quality nursing practice.

CNO often gets questions that need to be directed to one of our partners, because it is not within our mandate or scope to do so. It is important, as a nurse, to understand the roles of our system partners so that you know who to go to for questions and concerns.
