What is the north star of medical simulation? Transforming healthcare: a safety imperative — Leape et al. 18 (6): 424 — BMJ Quality and Safety

What is the north star of medical simulation?

Read what patient safety leaders perspective about patient safety:

“The principal conclusion of the To Err Is Human report is  that the major cause of adverse events is poorly designed systems, not negligent individual performance. The implication is that physicians, managers, nurses and others should work together in teams to redesign flawed processes to prevent harm. One reason this has not happened faster is that physicians have not been educated to carry out this critically important work.”

This is one of five transforming concepts from The Lucian Leape Institute, established by the US NationalPatient Safety Foundation to provide vision and strategicdirection for the patient safety work.

  • Transparency
  • Integrated care platform
  • Consumer engagement
  • Joy and meaning in work
  • Medical education reform
