Learn About the Program

In 2021 HIROC launched a new pan-Canadian Risk Residency Program, co-designed by healthcare risk and safety specialists. 

Participants learn from risk management, patient safety, human factors, insurance, claims, and legal subject matter experts from across Canada on a variety of applied topics. 

This program provides an opportunity to learn from the shared experiences of others, and brings together a knowledgeable community of experts. By the end, learners will have built a network of peers from across Canada and gained confidence on navigating the intricacies of risk management in a healthcare environment.  

The Risk Management Residency Program—offered at no cost to HIROC Subscribers—applies a blended learning approach (online educational materials and opportunities for interaction) accompanied by mentorship and coaching. 

Attendees benefit from:

  • Two-hour sessions every two weeks
  • Variety of educational formats such as panel discussions and simulation exercises
  • Peer-mentor pairing

Curriculum includes: 

  • Risk management essentials
  • Patient safety
  • Human factors
  • Privacy and cybersecurity
  • Incident investigations
  • Insurance-related topics e.g., liability, indemnity, etc.
  • Claims Management
  • Legal topics e.g., consent and capacity, Mental Health Act, etc.
  • Disclosures
