‘Patientsafe’

This is an independent website established in 2016 by a group of Australian critical care clinicians.  It focusses on patient safety solutions using a Human Factors approach, aiming to incorporate technology or process redesign principles to improve patient safety.   It contains a very useful collection of interesting resources on Human Resources & Patient Safety.  It also focusses on specific issues such as Central Line related air emboli (much more common than generally perceived!); The problem of indistinct Chlorhexidine; and the need for more widespread use of gas analysers.
