ABSTRACT
Is it time for anaesthetists to train in patient safety? However, although on paper there is much emphasis placed on safety training, in reality few clinicians have little more than a superficial level of understanding and receive little formal teaching or training on the subject. Training clinicians in QI methodology is a vital first step to address this. Royal Colleges need to develop patient safety curricula to define exactly what safety teaching is needed at all stages of training to ensure that safety training is universal, rather than being left to pioneering trusts [22].
