Much of patient safety research has focused on the hospital setting, but a majority of health care is delivered in the ambulatory setting. This collection explores key safety topics in the primary care environment: patient engagement, education and training, human factors, administrative errors, diagnostic errors, medication errors, multimorbidity, care transitions, and electronic tools. Each monograph provides an introduction to each area of concern and practical approaches to improvement.
