Desenvolupament de les unitats funcionals de seguretat dels pacients en l’atenció primària de Catalunya
Patient safety, understood as the quality of care quality that seeks to reduce and prevent the risks associated with health care, is a key aspect within the healthcare area that health systems in most countries face in the healthcare system. Its relevance arises from the ethical imperative of non-malice (the first of all must be to do no harm) and the conviction that it is not acceptable that no patient presents damages derived from the healthcare received, It expects to be curative and provide comfort and quality of life. Factors such as the complexity of healthcare, the diversification of the professionals involved or the existence of different healthcare phases, contribute to the appearance of adverse events that can compromise the safety of patients. These factors add to the emergence of new technologies, new treatments, medications and other procedures that, together with the increase in information from scientific advances, make healthcare increasingly sophisticated and with more risks potentials.
