THE CORRELATION WITH THE PATIENT SAFETY AND HUMAN FACTORS TSMU, DEPARTMENT OF SOCIALAND CLINICAL PHARMACY
The Multi-professional Patient Safety Curriculum Guide released by WHO in October 2011 promotes the need for patient safety education. The comprehensive guide assists universities and schools in the fields of dentistry, medicine, midwifery, nursing and pharmacy to teach patient safety. It also supports the training of all health-care professionals on priority patient safety concepts and practices. The Patient Safety Curriculum Guide provides teaching and information tools to support patient safety learning. The Curriculum Guide comprises two parts. Part A is a teachers’ guide designed to introduce patient safety concepts to educators. It relates to building capacity for patient safety education, programme planning and design of the courses. Part B provides all-inclusive, ready-to-teach, topic-based patient safety courses that can be used as a whole, or on a per topic basis.
