Entro is proud to have been involved in a new standard being developed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) for Wayfinding in Health Care Facilities. This is a new document, created in response to requests from health care professionals, government, and industry and an important step in setting universally recognized and understood approaches to communications in public facilities and best practices related to patient experience. We anticipate it will soon be adopted by the various provinces and will be widely applied. Further to the many resources and training that CSA will eventually make available, the team at Entro is here to answer questions about the standard, what’s coming and when and who will be affected.
The standard is now at the Public Review stage and CSA is inviting interested parties to review and comment. For anyone involved in patient or staff safety, or any aspect of wayfinding, this is a great opportunity to take part in the continued development of this important new standard. To review the draft and post comments, please visit the CSA Group Public Review site: http://publicreview.csa.ca/Home/Toc/2233. Comments will be accepted until October 4, 2016.
