Healthcare safety remains paramount in our ever-evolving system.

HIROC recognizes the need for greater knowledge-sharing and innovation around safety, and that’s why the HIROC Foundation has launched a new grant program to provide funding support to subscribers.


To be eligible to receive a Safety Grant, applicants must be from a HIROC subscriber organization.

Applications must be related to at least one of the following five themes:
  • Preventing neonatal harm in labour and delivery
  • Improving early detection and/or communication of patient deterioration (including escalation of concerns)
  • Preventing diagnosis errors 
  • Preventing errors in transitions of care
  • Strengthening organizational safety culture
Successful applications will receive grants of up to $20,000.
