Book: Patient Safety, Second Edition

New edition depicts the influence of health care errors and how these can be overcome

(John Wiley & Sons: Hoboken, NJ) -- When you are ready to implement measures to improve patient safety, this is the book to consult. Author Charles Vincent, one of the world’s pioneers in patient safety, discusses each and every aspect clearly and compellingly in Patient Safety, Second Edition (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010). He reviews the evidence of risks and harms to patients, and he provides practical guidance on implementing safer practices in health care.

The second edition puts greater emphasis on this practical side. Examples of team-based initiatives show how patient safety can be improved by changing cultural and technological practices throughout whole organizations. Not only does this benefit patients, it also positively affects health care delivery, with consequent savings in the economy.

Patient Safety has been praised as a gateway to understanding the subject. This second edition is more than that—it is a revelation of the pervading influence of health care errors, and a guide to how these can be overcome.
