Berger Z, Flickinger TE, Pfoh E, Martinez KA, Dy SM. BMJ Qual Saf. 2014;23:548-555.

Improving patient safety through the involvement of patients: development and evaluation of novel interventions to engage patients in preventing patient safety incidents and protecting them against unintended harm.
Wright J, Lawton R, O'Hara J, et al. Health Services and Delivery Research. Southampton, UK: NIHR Journals Library; 2016.
