Brief description Internationally, patient safety is a growing concern. Patient harm occurs in 10% of hospital admissions. A million adverse events occur in general practice each year in Australia. Overseas data reports that patients receive recommended care only 50% of the time. We will significantly advance this work by investigating how and why this ccurs, with a focus on the roles of teamwork, safe medication use and the application of information technology to support improved decision-making.
