Annual Evidence Update on Patient Safety: 26-30 January 2009

An update of the evidence on this topic from the NLH Patient and Public Involvement Specialist Library.

The Annual Evidence Update looks at the ways in which patients can help to improve patient safety, and also at the willingness of patients to perform safety-related behaviours. Find out more at
