Patient safety and Quality Healthcare
Patient safety is a discipline that emphasizes safety in health care through the prevention, reduction, reporting, and analysis of medical error that often leads to adverse effects. There is a significant transdisciplinary body of theoretical and research literature that informs the science of patient safety. The goal of health care is to provide medical resources of high quality to all. Researchers use a variety of quality measures to attempt to determine health care quality, including counts of a therapy's reduction or lessening of diseases identified by medical diagnosis, a decrease in the number of risk factors which people have following preventive care or a survey of health indicators in a population who are accessing certain kinds of care.
