    Demystifying Patient Safety to All in Healthcare




    Patient safety is a fundamental principle of healthcare and a major global concern. According to a new study by John Hopkins Medicine, medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, causing 250,000 deaths per year. This workshop will describe the components, typology, and classification of medical errors, as well as benefits and most common efforts to curb patient harm or injuries. The cost and myths related to medical errors will be covered, and major findings from the World Health Organization, the National Patient Safety Foundation, and The Joint Commission are included. The 2019 National Patient Safety Goals will be reviewed, as well as the interpreting standards directly reflecting patient safety concerns.
