Fostering connectivety is an important function of the Centre for Patient Safety. As a large number of groups in the University of Toronto already have core expertise in areas related to Patient Safety, we see the Centre’s role as putting people in touch with these existing experts, rather than attempting to replicate their expertise and activities.
