What makes a national social media and awareness campaign effective?

Join us to hear the impact of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute`s national campaign on reducing patient harm. Over 31,000 Canadians die every year because of harm in healthcare. To combat this, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute engaged healthcare providers and patients across the country to learn what question they would ask in order to save a life. Their campaign received millions of hits during Canadian Patient Safety Week and ultimately created large scale change across Canada.

Participants will:

  1. hear how to engage a diverse audience for a national campaign.
  2. learn how Twitter, gamification, videos and publications can have a lasting impact.
  3. discuss how technology helped made it possible to get millions of impressions.
