World Health Organisation report on exploring patient participation in reducing health care safety risks

Via Participation Cymru‘s newsletter: “Empowered patients are in a better position to manage their own health and health care and to participate in efforts to improve safety. This report presents an overview of legal aspects influencing patient safety and describes examples of patient involvement. It highlights the need to strengthen a continuum of information between various levels of care, including patient experiences, health literacy and engagement.” Link to the report(pdf).
