Role of Patient Safety Organizations in Improving Patient Safety

  • May 16, 2019

CRICO’s Jason Boulanger and Carol Keohane, co-authored an article with Ashley Yeats, MD of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Milton about the value and role of Patient Safety Organizations (PSO).

Published in the June 2019 issue of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics of North America journal, the authors wrote “PSO programs provide a forum for understanding, collaboration, and translation of evidence into practice at a faster pace than traditional methods of scientific review and deliberation.”

In conclusion, Boulanger et al, emphasized, “Perhaps most importantly, PSO programs help to promote a culture of safety in support of medicine’s primary tenet to ‘primum non nocere,’ first, do no harm.”
