Applying The Lessons Of Flight Safety To Medical Malpractice

airplane medical malpractice.jpgIt’s a subject that we’ve blogged about a lot: how applying aviation safety principles to medicine could revolutionize the practice of medicine and reduce the incidence of medical malpractice. (See earlier blog posts here and here).
Now Dr. James Bagian (whom we’ve previously blogged about here), a doctor and pilot, has co-authored a journal article about the specific lessons that medicine should be learning from aviation. You can read the article for yourself here. (H/t WSJ Health Blog). Unlike a lot of peer-reviewed journal articles, it’s on a level that’s completely accessible to the layperson. I hope to be able to comment on the article more extensively in the near future.
