Patient Safety resources – current awareness / research scan updates #ptsafety

Both the Health Foundation (based in UK) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ, based in the US) offer a hand-picked collection of resources relating to patient safety.

Health Foundation – The Research Scan (patient safety)
Patient safety is one of the themes (listed in tabs across the top, including ‘person-centred care’ and ‘approaches to improvement’).Patient Safety resources – research scan updates #ptsafety

“Every month we scan thousands of journals to select and summarise around 60 of the best studies about healthcare improvement.”

AHRQ Patient Safety NetworkThe Collection
“Annotated links to patient safety literature, news, and other resources.”
You can browse the collection, read the classics or the most popular additions.

What other resources would you recommend? Ideally ones that are updated periodically and where the update is freely available (obviously the literature being discussed might be behind a paywall). Please let us know in the comments, or on Twitter @chi_med
