The pace, diversity, and scope of an emergency department (ED) create a setting particularly prone to medical error. This comprehensive textbook provides important information on developing and advancing patient safety in emergency medicine, including relevant content on the ED setting, medical errors, organizational approaches to safety, teamwork, education, and human performance. The target audience is primarily emergency physicians and administrators but likely would extend to other allied health professionals and patient safety advocates. This textbook sets a foundation for the establishment of patient safety practices within emergency medicine.
