Above All, Do No Harm

Special thanks to Dr. Christopher Landrigan for the presentation he gave on this week's webinar. It was a fantastic discussion focused on his team's study, "Temporal Trends in Rates of Patient Harm Resulting from Medical Care," in the New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Landrigan and his colleagues examined the rates of harm in ten North Carolina hospitals from January 2002 to December 2007, to determine whether there were any widespread improvements in preventable harms and overall rate of harms. This webinar served as a discussion platform to identify the resources and practices that are needed to translate effective safety interventions into routine practice and to monitor health care safety over time. INQRI grantee Linda Flynn provided a reaction to the study based on her INQRI work.
