Abstract
Vous serez probablement excitée et anxieuse à l’approche de la naissance de votre bébé. La durée moyenne d’une grossesse est de 40 semaines. La plupart des femmes accouchent entre la 38e et la 42e semaine. Beaucoup de bébés ne viennent pas au monde à la date prévue d’accouchement. Environ 85 % des bébés naissent dans la semaine qui précède ou qui suit la date prévue d’accouchement. La meilleure chose à faire est de considérer votre date prévue d’accouchement comme la meilleure « estimation possible ». La présente brochure explique à quoi vous attendre si la grossesse se poursuit après votre date prévue d’accouchement. Elle traite aussi du déroulement des évaluations post-terme et de la façon de vous préparer à ces consultations. Les symptômes exigeant un appel à l’unité du travail et de l’accouchement sont indiqués.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1925, “Giving Birth After Your Due Date”. You will likely feel excited and anxious as you wait for the birth of your baby. The average length of pregnancy is 40 weeks. Most women give birth between 38 to 42 weeks. Many babies are not born on their due date. About 85% of babies are born within one week before or after their due date. It’s best to think of your due date as a “best guess.” This pamphlet describes what to expect if you go past your due date. What is done during a Post-Dates Assessment (PDA) and how to get ready for these visits are covered. A list of symptoms which require you to call the Labour & Delivery Unit is listed.

Abstract
Les gens s'attendent à recevoir des soins de santé en toute sécurité. Tous les jours, les prestataires de soins de santé travaillent fort pour offrir d'excellents soins de santé, en toute sécurité. Malgré tous nos efforts pour assurer votre sécurité, être à l'hôpital comporte des risques. Les patients peuvent, par exemple, faire une chute, contracter une infection, développer une plaie de pression (plaie de lit) ou recevoir la mauvaise dose d'un médicament. Ces événements sont appelés incidents liés à la sécurité des patients. Cette brochure explique ce que sont les incidents liés à la sécurité des patients, ce qu'il faut faire si vous constatez de tels incidents, comment les signaler, ce qu'est la divulgation, de quelle façon elle peut vous aider et comment elle a lieu. Une liste de ressources pour de plus amples renseignements est incluse.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1448, "Patients First: Disclosure of Patient Safety Incidents". People expect safe health care. Health care providers work hard every day to give safe, excellent care. Despite our best efforts to keep you safe, there are risks to being in the hospital. For example, a patient may fall, or get an infection or a pressure injury (bedsore), or be given the wrong dose of medication. These events are called patient safety incidents. This pamphlet explains what patient safety incidents are, what to do if you notice a patient safety incident, how patient safety incidents are reported, what disclosure is and how it will help you, and how disclosure takes place. A list of resources for further information is included.
