Washington (November 6, 2017)—More needs to be done to improve patient safety in the outpatient setting, said the American College of Physicians (ACP) in a new policy paper released today. Patient Safety in the Office-Based Practice Setting offers a set of recommendations aimed at improving patient care in office-based practices.
“In recent years, much attention has been focused on improving patient safety in hospitals,” said Jack Ende, MD, MACP, president, ACP. “We now must extend that focus to include the ambulatory setting. Medical errors that happen outside of the hospital are just as important to prevent.”
The paper outlines the following principles:
“Patient safety is an issue of critical importance across health care settings,” concluded Dr. Ende. “It is essential for physicians and other clinicians and policymakers to embrace and facilitate a culture of safety. Physicians and other members of the health care team, including patients and their families, must work together to create an environment where safety can be discussed in an open and respectful manner.”
