Publication type:  Journal article

In a nutshell:  This article aimed to investigate the formal and informal ways preregistration students from medicine, nursing, pharmacy and the allied healthcare professions learn about patient safety. Students were mainly taught about safety-related issues in isolation and there were limited opportunities for interprofessional learning and bridging the gaps between educational, practice and policy contexts. The authors state that a lot of thought needs to be given to the appointment of curriculum leads for patient safety and that they should be encouraged to work strategically across disciplines and topic areas. Role models should help students to make connections between theoretical considerations and routine clinical care.
