Learning from Error

Patient Safety (Learning from Error)

The workshop explores how multiple weaknesses present within the hospital system can lead to error. It aims to provide all health-care workers and managers with an insight into the underlying causes of such events. Although the workshop materials revolve around an error involving the inappropriate administration of a drug, the underlying principles of why an error occurs are universal. This workshop is based on the contents provided by World Health Organization.
