Order from Chaos: Accelerating Care Integration – National Patient Safety Foundation [US] – October 2012

Report of the Lucian Leape Institute Roundtable On Care Integration

“Health care today presents a difficult challenge: as our ability to recognize and treat disease continues to grow, so too does the complexity of delivering those solutions to each patient and to populations. Too often, care integration–the planned, thoughtful design of the care process for the benefit and protection of the patient—is lacking. This report addresses the issue of care integration with the aim of outlining the major barriers to effective integration and providing a framework for further consideration and action among stakeholders.”

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.”
