Summary
Adverse events and poor patient outcomes occur for all doctors, regardless of subspecialty, regardless of educational and training pedigree, and despite best intentions. Such occurrences often exact a significant and sometimes lasting emotional toll on doctors, even apart from any culpability or potential medicolegal ramifications. In this Medical center hour Dr. Farnaz Gazoni demonstrates that adverse events in clinical care and their impact on physicians have substantial, widespread repercussions affecting quality of care and patient safety. But her research and experience show too that, by simply cultivating awareness of this issue, health care institutions and individual practitioners are taking important first steps toward culture change.
