Safety Innovations Database

We have created the Safety Innovations Database as a way for people to share ideas, initiatives and programs that can help address health and safety issues in continuing care.

We know there are lots of great ideas out there. The searchable database is a place for those in health care to learn from one another Somewhere, there is a solution to the challenges you’re experiencing. And you have the answer to someone else’s challenge. 

With your help, we will grow the database, as it becomes the go-to place to test and share new ideas. We invite you to explore the database by clicking the title link for each entry or by searching with keywords.
