Brief Description

Components of the BSR program include implementing safety risk screening and communication alerts, creating patient BSR care plans, and applying interventions to mitigate risk. The program is currently being implemented at the Juravinski, Hamilton General, St. Peter’s and West Lincoln Memorial hospitals as well as the Urgent Care Centre. It will be expanded to other HHS sites in the upcoming months.  The CEBI team is responsible for conducting an evaluation of the implementation.
