Learn about the Recognizing Excellence in Patient Engagement for Patient Safety Recognition Program
Health Standards Organization (HSO) and its affiliate, Accreditation Canada, have been identifying and publishing Leading Practices in the Leading Practices Library for over 15 years. A Leading Practice is an innovative, people-centred, evidence-informed practice that has been implemented by teams in an organization. The leading practice has demonstrated a positive change related to safe and reliable care/service, accessible and appropriate care/service, and/or integrated care/service. The Leading Practices Library is a knowledge-sharing resource and serves to recognize innovative practices that have been submitted and have undergone a review by peer reviewers. Leading Practices are shared with the public, policymakers and organizations who are interested in improving and making real quality and health system changes. Practices that are recognized as Leading Practices are published in the Leading Practices Library. Leading Practices are also promoted through HSO mediums including newsletters, webinars, conferences, education materials, and affiliated accrediting bodies.
