Achieving zero inequity: lessons learned from patient safety.
Gandhi TK. NEJM Catalyst. Epub 2021 May 27.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a spotlight on bias, disparities, and inequity in the healthcare system. The author advocates using the same strategies to reduce inequities that were used to improve patient safety: 1) culture, leadership, and governance; 2) learning systems; 3) workforce; and 4) patient engagement.
