Feature article in the British Medical Journal - September 2009

The WHO Patient Safety Curriculum Guide received a great boost from this very supportive article in the BMJ in September 2009. The article quotes Stefan Lindgren, president of the World Federation for Medical Education, in saying that patient safety "is a core attitude and thus needs to be introduced early and then reinforced throughout postgraduate education and continuing professional development."
