Patient Safety Integrating the Active Offer with an Interprofessional Approach

When active offer is integrated into interprofessional relations

Over 10% of Nova Scotians speak French, therefore it is quite likely that Health Professionals will care for French speaking patients throughout their career.  In order to provide safe and quality care to all patients, it is important to take in consideration the patient’s language.
