Some of the most important and best lessons in a
doctor?s career are learnt from mistakes. However, an
awareness of the common causes of medical errors and developing
positive behaviours can reduce the risk of mistakes and
Written for junior medical staff and consultants, and unlike any
other clinical management title available, Avoiding Errors in
Adult Medicine identifies and explains the most common errors
likely to occur in an adult medicine setting - so that you
won?t make them.
The first section in this brand new guide discusses the causes of
errors in adult medicine. The second and largest section consists
of case scenarios and includes expert and legal comment as well as
clinical teaching points and strategies to help you engage in safer
practice throughout your career. The final section discusses how to
deal with complaints and the subsequent potential
medico-legal consequences, helping to reduce your anxiety when
dealing with the consequences of an error.
Invaluable during the Foundation Years, Specialty Training and
for Consultants, Avoiding Errors in Adult Medicine is the
perfect guide to help tackle the professional and emotional
challenges of life as a physician.
