Patient safety is a basic patient right as well as a duty for medical providers. Preventive measures in diagnostic, therapeutic, and nursing care are diverse and must be adapted to each situation. For the first time, the book presents an up-to-date and interdisciplinary view on patient safety and clinical risk management for ambulatory and inpatient care organized according to the WHO “Patient Safety Curriculum Guide.”

A team of more then 60 experts have contributed to this book, including Torsten Gruchmann with an article about human factors engineering.

The book is available now in German (ISBN 978-3-11-033705-1).
