Patty Skolnik adds "author" to her credentials

Congratulations to patient advocate Patty Skolnik in her new role as co-author in an international journal, Teaching and Learning in Medicine.  The title of the article is "Patient Safety Education: What Was, What Is, and What Will Be?" You can find it here.

The abstract:

Patient safety is an important topic that has been receiving more attention in the current health care climate. Patient safety as a curriculum topic in medical schools has only become apparent in the late 1990s, and much more needs to be done. This article summarizes patient safety curricular content as it occurred (or did not occur) in medical education circles in the past (pre-1990s), and present. It also makes some recommendations for the future of medical education curricula in the area of patient safety, using a framework for the development of expertise using the Dreyfus educational model.

Patty Skolnik's righteous indignation propels her mission to protect patients from preventable harm. The agonizing loss of her dear young-adult son as result of a needless brain surgery by an unscrupulous physician could still occur. Thank you, Patty, for partnering and leading!
