This book offers a series of case studies on patient safety - specifically errors that lead to preventable patient harm -- told from the perspective of the patient and family. The reader is guided through a structured analysis of the events, eliciting lessons learned and strategies for preventing similar events in the future. Learning objectives for each case facilitate the reader's development of a set of core competencies related to improving safety and quality of health care. Students of the health professions (medical, nursing, pharmacy, health administration, public health) as well as practicing professionals (patient safety officers, chief quality officers, risk managers, health service researchers) will gain valuable insight into the real-world of medical errors and a better understanding of how they can be prevented through practical, actionable methods.
