University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international
source for discovery, education and patient care.

I am sending along a
link to a site which highlights the units and areas with 100% participation in the Speak Up For Safety survey. We will be distributing the survey results to managers and posting on the intranet and I will certainly be letting everyone know when the results are posted. If you click through on the link, please make sure you go to full screen and then click on the site that interests you. There you will find the areas and units with a 100% participation. Overall there was a 74% participation in the survey which demonstrates exceptional commitment and momentum for our efforts to enhance safety for all patients and staff.
Our safety culture survey results will guide us as we work through our approach to becoming a Learning Health and High Reliability Organization (HRO). The survey was the first step in this process and we will have more information for everyone on our HRO plan, approach and timelines, early in the new year. For an excellent summary of the remarkable work done this year, see the webinar by Emily Musing
Last week, the senior leaders in the organization all took part in an education session about workplace violence. I wanted to use this Looking Ahead to ask that everyone at UHN take the time to complete the
mandatory training which is required of everyone at UHN – no matter where you work. The link will take you to the eLearning Centre which is where the courses are located. The easiest place to find an overview of the courses is here which will link you to the handbook for New Employees. The courses that are legally mandated for all of us are:
When I say legally mandated, it means that the Provincial law requires everyone at UHN to complete the coursework above and this is a requirement for employment. Your managers are given the completion rates for every employee and will be in touch if you haven’t completed the coursework.
Thank you for your efforts to stay current on these critical areas that impact our collective knowledge and awareness regarding privacy, safety, and our shared commitment to Ontarians with disabilities.
