This book takes a psychological perspective on patient safety. Theoretical and empirical research on safety-related experiences and behaviors in clinical settings is reviewed. Individual, team, and organizational factors that, by themselves and in combination, facilitate or impede patient safety are considered, including knowledge, skills, abilities, and personality as well as higher-order factors such as safety culture and climate.
