King Abdulaziz University offers a stand-alone module as part of their curriculum that has been adopted from the WHO Patient Safety Curriculum for Medical Schools (5). Thus, it resembles the intervention sample, as their program enables students to combine knowledge, attitudes and skills to achieve a deeper understanding of how their performance impacts on patient safety and the quality of healthcare. This paper aims to identify the problem regarding patient safety and evaluate the impact of teaching patient safety principles in one of its major universities in Saudi Arabia.
If one passes the USMLE they will be officially licensed to practice medicine. Once one has their license they can now go and complete the Anesthesiology Residency Program. The Anesthesiology Residency Program is a three year residency program training physicians to become anesthesiologists (Macario). After one is done with their one year internship one can now start with their three years of anesthesiology training.
In this case the concurrent review was chosen. As discussed previously in the assignment it was decided that drug kardex documentation would be audited. A drug kardex, also known as drug prescription or drug script is defined by the World Health Organisation (2002) as ‘’an instruction from the prescriber to the dispenser’’. In this instance the prescriber will be identified as any doctor in the hospital setting with prescriptive authority and the dispenser can be identified as any registered general nurse.

My focus will be on the methods for clinical and translational of the research, and critical reading of epidemiologic literature. Studying epidemiology will familiarize me with the research techniques which are crucial for me as medical doctor and to the patients. My passion in the field of medical research started from my 4th year at medical school, when together with my colleagues I led a survey that
In high school you can prepare for a medical career by concentrating on highly advanced science classes such as chemistry and biology. Volunteering or working at a hospital to receive first-hand experience working around healthcare professionals and patients is also another way to prepare (“American Society of Anesthesiologists - How to Prepare for a Career in Anesthesiology”). Undergraduate studies contain different knowledge you need to know. College students interested in a medical career should complete liberal arts requirements but plan a pre-med course of study.

Advances in technology and an anticipated increase in the number of outpatient clinics and doctors’ offices will offer students with a medical assistant degree an excellent chance of securing permanent employment. To be admitted to a medical assistant program in the state of Kentucky, potential students need a high school diploma or GED. A candidate will complete an application, which is then reviewed by an admissions rep. The school representative then interviews the applicant. If the admissions rep approves the

When instructed to take medicines prescribed by doctors, there is rarely any second thought put in before taking those pills. Knowing the side effects of your medications and knowing proper dosages is something that should be done religiously. Opiate overdoses have become one of the leading causes of death in America, this is largely due to doctors not following policy and prescribing addictive narcotics for inappropriate ailments, which leads to addiction, and can destroy the lives of those around them. Patients should be able to trust doctors and know that they are in safe hands, however it now seems as this is not always the case. Doctors are overprescribing addictive medicines and failing to follow proper policy for prescribing those medicines.
According to estimates, at least 1.5 million preventable medication errors and adverse drug events occur each year in the United States. One-third of all medication errors occur during the administration phase of medication delivery (Durham, 2015). Medication safety is freedom from preventable harm with medication use; therefore, nurses must promote patient safety by understanding their contributions to the prevention of medication error (Choo, Hutchinson, & Bucknall, 2010). Additionally, a medication error is any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or patient harm while the medication is in the control of the health care professional. Thus, to promote medication safety, nurses must understand their roles in proper medication management and identify challenges that associated with medication safety.
