World Health Organization. (2005). World alliance for patient safety : WHO draft guidelines for adverse event reporting and learning systems : from information to action. World Health Organization. 2005.
Reducing medical errors has become an international concern. Population-based studies from a number of nations around the world have consistently demonstrated unacceptably high rates of medical injury and preventable deaths. In response, a global effort, the World Alliance for Patient Safety, has been launched by WHO to galvanize and facilitate efforts by all Member States to make health care safer.
These draft guidelines are a contribution to the Forward Programme 2005 of the World Alliance for Patient Safety (1). The guidelines introduce adverse event report-ing and focus on reporting and learning to improve the safety of patient care.
