Global Launch of the Safety in Numbers Paper Series

by alexauthenticworld

HPSN World 2013 in San Francisco saw the global launch of the Safety in Numbers series of papers

This ten-paper series traces the 20-year history of translation research that underpins the design, development and international evaluation of the safeMedicate suite of programs.

The publisher Elsevier has provided FREE online access to the series for a limited period of time. Papers can be downloaded in PDF format or viewed in an online format that incorporates a range of animated graphics illustrating the pedagogical principles and unique interactive and transformative nature of the safeMedicate learning and assessment education environment. Both formats can be accessed at http://www.nurseeducationinpractice.com/content/safety

We call upon the international healthcare community to review and evaluate the Safety in Numbers series and to comment on the series as a whole on this blog page and on individual papers via the relevant blog links below.
