‘A ground-breaking change in post graduate medical training
begins this year. As part of the Modernising Medical Careers
programme, a new curriculum for junior doctors is being introduced.
Patient safety will be at the heart of this curriculum’.
Professor Sir Liam Donaldson, Chief
Patient Safety Agency, 2005)
Modern healthcare is a complex and high-risk activity,
and patient safety is now a major concern in the delivery
of healthcare services across the globe. In the UK, a document
entitled An Organisation With a Memory (Department of Health, 2000) has highlighted the
importance of understanding adverse incidents in the NHS.
The aim of this module is to provide a review of clinical
errors and medical negligence, including processes that increase
the likelihood of negligence claims against clinicians.
