Abstract

The Threats to Australian Patient Safety (TAPS) study collected 648 anonymous reports about threats to patient safety by a representative random sample of Australian general practitioners. These contained any events the GPs felt should not have happened, and would not want to happen again, regardless of who was at fault or the outcome of the event. This series of articles presents clinical lessons resulting from the TAPS study.
