Abstract

The authors argue that despite the success of the patient-safety movement in attracting the attention of the public and the medical profession, the Institute of Medicine's goal of reducing deaths from medical errors by 50 percent has not been achieved. They believe the greatest promise will come not from a focus on preventing accidental deaths but from dedication to evidence-based interventions to deliver more effective medical care.
