Preface

Preface Patient safety is one of the most important topics in health care literature today. It also represents a rapidly developing research area for both nurse scientists and other health care researchers, and, based on the problems addressed, it is necessarily interdisciplinary in nature. In this 24th volume of the Annual Review of Nursing Research, the editors and contributors examine research on key aspects of patient safety. In Chapter 1, the volume editors, Patricia W. Stone and Patricia Hinton Walker, and two co-authors, Gaya Carlton and Lela Holden, present the concep- tual organization for the volume, including attention to the context of patient safety research and the terminology found in the literature. Included in this in- troductory chapter is discussion of the work of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the shaping of the patient safety research agenda by the Agency for Health- care Research and Quality (AHRQ). The patient safety content of this volume is organized into five sections. Part I is the introduction that gives a brief history of the patient safety movement and discusses Reason’s theory of human error. Part II, Patient Safety Indicators, includes three chapters, each highlighting a different nursing-sensitive patient safety indicator.

Abstract

Patient safety is one of the most important topics in health care literature today. It also represents a rapidly developing research area for both nurse scientists and other health care researchers, and, based on the problems addressed, it is necessarily interdisciplinary in nature. In this 24th volume of the Annual Review of Nursing Research, the editors and contributors examine research on key aspects of patient safety. In Chapter 1, the volume editors, Patricia W. Stone and Patricia Hinton Walker, and two co-authors, Gaya Carlton and Lela Holden, present the concep- tual organization for the volume, including attention to the context of patient safety research and the terminology found in the literature. Included in this in- troductory chapter is discussion of the work of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the shaping of the patient safety research agenda by the Agency for Health- care Research and Quality (AHRQ). The patient safety content of this volume is organized into five sections. Part I is the introduction that gives a brief history of the patient safety movement and discusses Reason’s theory of human error. Part II, Patient Safety Indicators, includes three chapters, each highlighting a different nursing-sensitive patient safety indicator. Gaya Carlton
