Defining attributes of patient safety through a concept analysis.

Kim L, Lyder CH, McNeese-Smith D, et al. Journal of advanced nursing. 2015;71:2490-503.

Researchers searched the term "patient safety" in the nursing literature and found that few articles gave clear explanations of the concept. Using case discussions to illustrate patient safety in practice situations, the authors seek to help nurses understand the concept, empower them to engage in multidisciplinary efforts to improve safety in care environments, and promote measurement of patient safety data.
