Abstrakt

Patient safety measurement from e.g. indicators, audits and questionnaires is used for risk management. Five years after the Danish Act on Patient Safety came into force, it remains unknown if health care is getting safer. The perspective of implementing patient safety methods for systematic monitoring is that it will become possible to continuously estimate the prevalence and incidence of patient safety problems. The lesson learnt in quality improvement is that it will pay back in terms of improvement in patient safety. For this purpose validated methods are needed.
