OHA to Re-Launch "Your Health Care - Be Involved" Campaign



    OTTAWA, Oct. 11 /CNW/ - On Friday, October 12, 2007, the Ontario Hospital
Association (OHA) will re-launch its "Your Health Care - Be Involved"
province-wide patient safety tips campaign to signal its renewed commitment to
patient safety and to help empower patients make informed decisions about
their health care.
    Originally launched in 2005, "Your Health Care - Be Involved" empowers
patients and promotes better health outcomes by bringing the advice and
expertise of health professionals together in five common-sense patient
"tips".
    The official public re-launch will take place during the Canadian
Healthcare Safety Symposium at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa, and will feature
short presentations by key speakers. The event coincides with Canadian Patient
Safety Week (October 8 - 13) and strongly supports the 2007 Canadian Patient
Safety Week theme "Patient Safety: Be Involved. Ask. Talk. Listen."
