Patient Safety and NOTSS

 

IanRitchie"Patient safety is an issue which concerns all those who care for patients and lies at the heart of medical practice. All surgeons have a primary responsibility to participate in established procedures and to develop new measures to improve patient safety: The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh's Patient Safety Board is committed to improving standards through education and training and by supporting research into human factors which may prevent or mitigate patient harm."
