To Err Is Human. Building a Safer Health System (2000)
The title of this report encapsulates its purpose. Human beings,
in all lines of work, make errors. Errors can be prevented by

Improving Diagnosis in Health Care (2015)
This report has three major themes.
First, Improving Diagnosis in Health Care exposes a critical type
of error in health care - diagnostic error - that has received
relatively little attention since the release of
To Err Is Human
Second, patients are central to the solution. ... The reportís first
goal centers on the need to establish partnerships with patients
and their families to improve diagnosis, and several recommen-
dations aim to facilitate and enhance such partnerships.
Third, diagnosis is a collaborative effort. ... The complexity of
health and disease and the increasing complexity of health care
demands collaboration and teamwork among and between health
care professionals, as well as with patients and their families.

Medical error - the third leading cause of death in the US
Death certificates in the US, used to compile national statistics,
have no facility for acknowledging medical error. If medical error
was a disease, it would rank as the third leading cause of death
in the US. The system for measuring national vital statistics should
be revised to facilitate better understanding of deaths due to

Sustaining Improvement (2016)
How can health care organizations sustain improvements in safety,
effectiveness, and efficiency of patient care? According to the new
IHI White Paper, Sustaining Improvement, the key is to focus on the
daily work of frontline managers, supported by a high-performance
management system that prescribes standard tasks and responsi-
bilities for managers at all levels of the organization.
The white paper presents a theoretical context for high-performance
management, grounded in the Juran Trilogy (Quality Planning,
Quality Control, and Quality Improvement); a framework for high-
performance management; a driver diagram for implementing the
framework; and case examples describing three organizations
approaches to testing and implementing management standard

Implementarea unei strategii nationale pentru BPOC
Dezvoltarea si implementarea unei strategii nationale pentru
BPOC va asigura limitarea actiunii factorilor de risc, diagnos-

sistem medical integrat in care se aplica principiile medicinei
bazate pe dovezi, care aloca in mod dinamic resurse si servicii
medicale in functie de severitatea patologiei, cu optimizarea
costurilor si a indicatorilor de morbiditate.

Improving Diagnostic Quality and Safety (2017)
The Committee designed a measurement framework that can be
used to improve quality and safety in the diagnostic process.
The final measurement framework takes into account the patient,
the patientís family, caregivers, and their experiences with the
diagnostic process. The framework considers the diagnostic
process itself, including the initial steps in identifying the patientís
health problem, the timeliness of the diagnosis, communication of
diagnosis, and whether appropriate follow-up services were
provided. Finally, the framework addresses organizational issues,
including efforts to learn from diagnostic errors, patientsí access to
diagnostic services in a timely manner, availability of appropriate
staff and material resources, as well as the organizationís culture
as it pertains to diagnostic quality and safety.

Improvement Knowledge and Skills Guide.
Development Assessment Tool for All Staff (2017)
Improvement is everyoneís role and responsibility and this is clear
from the improvement initiatives already being undertaken by
frontline staff and teams in our health service. We must find new
and better ways of working together within hospital groups,
community healthcare organisations and the national ambulance
service to deliver high quality care and services to patients,
service users and their families. This is essential in fulfilling our
commitment to achieving real and sustained improvements.
The aim of this guide is to support the ongoing learning and
professional development of all staff both clinical and non-clinical
by providing a list of improvement knowledge and skills which
can help to educate, train and guide staff on how to deliver
improvement in the health service.
Cum se scrie un articol in engleza?
Procesul de scriere a unui articol nu este unul unic. Nu exista o
reteta perfecta. Fiecare isi dezvolta pana la urma un anumit
mecanism cu care se simte confortabil si care ii este de folos.
Scrierea unui articol trece prin mai multe etape de distilare,
decantare, clarificare. La fiecare etapa se intervine cu ceva
anume, ceva foarte precis. Cam care ar fi aceste etape?

Erorile clinice sunt o problema de sistem
BMJ editia in limba rom‚na
Acuzatiile de omucidere aduse cadrelor medicale in ultimii
cativa ani s-au axat pe erorile clinice individuale, nu pe
specialistii responsabili de luarea deciziilor referitoare la modul
in care sistemele sunt conduse ori finantate. Atunci cand putem
da vina pe cineva avem impresia ca am scapat de marul putred
din cos si ca acum e totul in regula. Este, insa, o eroare de
sistem. De fapt, cosul e problema.
