This study of US primary care physicians tested their patient safety and quality knowledge. Five topic areas were assessed: 1) patient management, 2) radiation risk, 3) general safety and quality, 4) structure, process, and outcome, and, 5) quality and safety definitions. The average score was 48% correct, indicating additional education in patient safety and quality for practicing primary care physicians is needed.
