Medical Errors: Practicing Physician and Public Views
This study by the Harvard School of Public Health and the Kaiser Family Foundation documents the attitudes of doctors and the public about medical errors and their or their families’ experiences with medical errors in the course of receiving medical care. The surveys also compare physician and public perspectives on the extent of the problem and their views on the effectiveness of proposed solutions.
The study’s findings are featured in The New England Journal of Medicine December 12, 2002 edition.
