New Lucian Leape Institute Report Finds That U.S. Medical Schools Are Falling Short in Teaching Physicians How to Provide Safe Patient Care
Date:3/10/2010

BOSTON, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lucian Leape Institute at the National Patient Safety Foundation released today a report that finds that U.S. "medical schools are not doing an adequate job of facilitating student understanding of basic knowledge and the development of skills required for the provision of safe patient care." The report comes approximately 10 years after the Institute of Medicine's landmark 1999 report "To Err Is Human," which found that 98,000 Americans die unnecessarily from preventable medical errors. "Despite concerted efforts by many conscientious health care organizations and health professionals to improve and implement safer practices, health care remains fundamentally unsafe," said Lucian L. Leape, MD, Chair of the Institute and a widely renowned leader in patient safety. "The result is that patient safety still remains one of the nation's most solvable public health challenges."
