Summary This text provides background on the patient safety movement, systems safety, human error and other key philosophies that support change and innovation in the reduction of medical error. It draws from multidisciplinary areas within the acute care environment to share models that support the proactive changes necessary to provide safe care delivery. This book discusses how the tenets of safety can be actively applied in the field to make evidence, information and knowledge (EIK) sharing processes reliable, effective and safe. This text is designed to raise awareness of the latent risks for patient safety that are present in the EIK identification, acquisition and distribution processes, structures, and systems of many healthcare institutions across the world. The expert contributors offer systemic, evidence-based improvement processes, assessment concepts and innovative activities to identify these risks to minimize their potential to adversely impact care. These ideas are presented to create opportunities for the field to design and use strategies that enable meaningful implementation and management of EIK. Their thoughts will enable healthcare staff to see EIK as a tangible element contributing toward sustainable patient safety improvements
