These transforming concepts, thought to be essential to the success of patient safety work and requiring system-level attention and action, include: reforming medical education; enhanced consumer and patient involvement in patient care; the expectation of full transparency in patient care; care integration in and across health care organizations; and restoration of pride, meaning, and joy in professional work.
