Issue 1 is Available Now!


The inaugural issue of Patient Safety is hereā€”and with no subscription fees, you can read it online now at no charge.

In the pages of this new journal, you will find high-quality, evidence-based research articles, advanced analytics, interviews with leaders in their fields, engaging editorials, and patient commentaries. There really is no other journal quite like this one.

Some of the articles you'll find in the September 2019 issue include a timely discussion about opioids with Dr. Rachel Levine, secretary of health for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; a look at the dangers of both peripheral and central venous catheters, and a moving patient commentary from Dwight McKay that underscores the importance of health literacy. And so much more!

We are so pleased to be sharing this issue with readers everywhere, particularly today, on International Patient Safety Day. Thank you to the many contributing authors, peer reviewers, Patient Safety Authority staff, and editorial board members who helped make Patient Safety possible.
