Scoping review of patients' attitudes about their role and behaviours to ensure safe care at the direct care level.

Duhn L, Godfrey C, Medves J. Health Expect. 2020;23(5):979-991.

This scoping review characterized the evidence base on patients’ attitudes and behaviors concerning their engagement in ensuring the safety of their care. The review found increasing interest in patient and family engagement in safety and identified several research gaps, such as a need to better understand patients’ attitudes across the continuum of care, the role of family members, and engagement in primary care safety practices.
