FREE ADVANCE SCREENING | To Err is Human: a patient safety documentary screening
The third leading cause of death in the United States is its own health care system. Medical mistakes lead to as many as 440,000 preventable deaths every year. Directed by the son of late patient safety pioneer, Dr John M. Eisenberg, To Err Is Human is an in-depth documentary about this silent epidemic and those working behind the scenes to create a new age of patient safety.
Through interviews with leaders in healthcare, footage of real-world efforts leading to safer care, and one family's compelling journey from tragedy to triumph, the film provides a unique look at our health care system's ongoing fight against preventable harm.
Adam Montagu, Director of Adelaide Health Simulation, invites you to be one of the first in Australia to view this thought-provoking production, followed by a panel Q&A discussion on the urgent need for healthcare to rethink patient safety.
