Patient Safety Curriculum Guide

Multi-professional Patient Safety Curriculum Guide

The Patient Safety Curriculum Guide provides teaching and information tools to support patient safety learning. The Curriculum Guide comprises two parts. Part A is a teachers’ guide designed to introduce patient safety concepts to educators. It relates to building capacity for patient safety education, programme planning and design of the courses. Part B provides all-inclusive, ready-to-teach, topic-based patient safety courses that can be used as a whole, or on a per topic basis. There are 11 patient safety topics, each designed to feature a variety of ideas and methods for patient safety learning.

Universities are encouraged to start with Part A which provides comprehensive advice on how to introduce and build patient safety courses.
