In a series of true stories from across Canada, this collection seeks to point out the considerable human toll that medical errors cause. Victims of medical errors and their families who speak out often do so at considerable emotional, psychological, and financial expense. But their willingness to share their harrowing stories has helped to lay the foundation for numerous patient safety programs and continues to identify problems, provide solutions, and raise awareness. These emotional and moving stories underline serious issues with medical errors while empowering patients.

Susan McIver holds a Ph.D. in entomology/microbiology, was a professor at the University of Toronto with appointments to the Faculty of Medicine, and a department chair at the University of Guelph. Subsequently, she served as a community coroner in British Columbia. She is also the author of Medical Nightmares: The Human Face of Errors. Robin Wyndham was a registered nurse for 34 years. She worked in neonatal intensive care, surgery, psychiatry and residential care and had a special interest in palliative care. She studied nursing at the Vancouver General Hospital and English at the University of British Columbia.

After the Error: Speaking Out About Patient Safety To Save Lives will be a real eye-opener for most of us." —Alan Shanoff, Toronto Sun
