What stage are low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) at with patient safety curriculum implementation and what are the barriers to implementation? A two-stage cross-sectional study.
In the United States, patient safety is a required competency within residency training. Despite the dissemination of the WHO Patient Safety Curriculum internationally, little is known about its implementation in low- and middle-income countries. This cross-sectional survey study found that while 30 of 44 countries surveyed were considering implementing a patient safety curriculum, significant barriers to successful implementation persist.
