ldquo;To Err is Humanrdquo;, said the 1999 landmark report published by the Institute of Medicine. The report that highlighted tragic numbers of injury and harm, the wide reaching nature of this problem, and areas of need to reverse this growing trend was also a call to action. Today, health care professionals recognize the importance of patient safety education across many disciplines. Based on an interprofessional course designed by faculty in bioethics, business, dentistry, law, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, and social work, Foundations of Patient Safety for Health Professionals is ideal as a basic introductory text on patient safety and health care quality improvement for graduate and undergraduate courses across the health professions, nursing, and health administration. Key Features: Featuring personal and professional stories, the authors use a patient-centered approach within a practice-based context. Using simple, straightforward language, the book illustrates a common model of patient care planning representing core responsibilities of any health professional involved in serving patients. Concepts of safe systems serve as an overarching principle to the field of patient safety. By engaging in a series of modules complimented by case-based exercises, students easily learn the scope of the problem of patient safety, and acquire the skills to foster a culture of continuous learning and incorporation of patient safety best practices and improvements in their own individual professional practices.
