Patient Safety / Segurança do Doente

After overcoming 40,000 views (and we are very grateful to you) we chose to make a change.

The change is in our name: Segurança do Doente / Patient Safety

We make this change consciously assuming the scope of a larger concept

According to WHO the simplest definition of patient safety “is the prevention of errors and adverse effects to patients associated with health care. While health care has become more effective it has also become more complex, with greater use of new technologies, medicines and treatments. Health services treat older and sicker patients who often present with significant co-morbidities requiring more and more difficult decisions as to health care priorities. Increasing economic pressure on health systems often leads to overloaded health care environments.

We also like the definition of LindaEmanuel (et. all), that says that “Patient safety is a discipline in the health care sector that applies safety science methods toward the goal of achieving a trustworthy system of health care delivery. Patient safety is also an attribute of health care systems; it minimizes the incidence and impact of, and maximizes recovery from, adverse events.”

We could share and discuss other definitions, but in essence all of them refer to “safety healthcare”.

It is the sharing of this knowledge and experience, and the path traveled, that we have done from day one, from the first "post" on February 4, 2011.

And that's what we will continue to do.
Once again thank you all for reading us and spread the "Patient Safety".
