The harm associated with health care is a questionable issue and several systemic global strategies to reduce it with a safer system are being developed. Despite these efforts, errors continue to happen and one of the most important challenges is to become aware of its real dimension and process-occurrence. This book provides new research on patient safety and management. It discusses different perspectives, principles and reviews emerging issues in the medical field.
