Safety and Quality in Hospital Care - AHMC801

Safety and quality are vitally important and ongoing aspects of hospital care. This unit critically examines decision making and error in everyday life and progresses these concepts by focusing on medical errors, how to respond to error, how to discuss error with patients and colleagues, and how to prevent errors from happening again. Discussions also include examining how medical error is reported in the media and potential political and legal responses to error.
