Abstract

Practicing Patient Safety in Psychiatry is an expertly written, ready-to-use practical online guide on patient safety that focuses on how to carefully (and courteously) treat patients in psychiatric care settings. Focusing on issues of clinical leadership, strategic planning, and how to prevent lapses, oversights and errors, it is designed for easy reading and reference. Building upon case-based questions and guidance, Dr. Geetha Jayaram and her team of contributors provide extensive clinical experience to highlight patient care aspects that are most problematic for practicing clinicians and nurses who wish to improve upon the culture of safety in their respective units of service.
