Unmet Needs: Teaching Physicians to Provide Safe Patient Care – National Patient Safety Foundation [US] – 10 March 2010

“Ten years after the Institute of Medicine’s landmark 1999 report To Err Is Human, the Lucian Leape Institute at the National Patient Safety Foundation has released a white paper finding that US medical schools are not doing an adequate job of facilitating student understanding of basic knowledge and the development of skills required for the provision of safe patient care.

Unmet Needs: Teaching Physicians to Provide Safe Patient Care is the culmination of three LLI Roundtable discussions and makes key recommendations for reforming medical education in order to improve patient safety. The paper is the first in a planned series of such reports on issues that the Lucian Leape Institute has identified as top priorities in ongoing efforts to improve patient safety.”
