World Patient Safety Day: what role for HIFA? (5)

19 September, 2020


You have raised a good question. What can HIFA do to ensure patient safety? Let's flip the question. What contribute to endangering patient safety?

When doctors do not have complete patient history

When there is an inadequate diagnosis

When prescriptions clash with medications that a patient is taking

When a patient is not health literate

When a patient does not comply with the care

HIFA can provide (?) or evangelize or work with institutions and governments to help doctors and patients access tools and mechanisms that can enhance safety in patient care.
