When you are ready to implement measures to improve patient safety,
this is the book to consult. Charles Vincent, one of the world's
pioneers in patient safety, discusses each and every aspect clearly
and compellingly. 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 practices, both cultural and technological,
throughout whole organisations. Not only does this benefit
patients; it also impacts positively on 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.

"... The beauty of this book is that it describes the complexity
of patient safety in a simple coherent way and captures the breadth
of issues that encompass this fascinating field.  The author
provides numerous ways in which the reader can take this subject
further with links to the international world of patient safety and
evidence based research... One of the most difficult aspects of
patient safety is that of implementation of safer practices and
sustained change.  Charles Vincent, through this book,
provides all who read it clear examples to help with these
challenges" From a review in Hospital Medicine by Dr Suzette
Woodward, Director of Patient Safety.
