Did you know that more people die from medical mistakes in hospitals each year than from highway accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS, according to the Institute of Medicine (IOM, 2001). One of the main causes, researchers point out, is miscommunication among healthcare workers. What the world needs now is a tool to fill the knowledge gap, to facilitate the patient safety that effective communication can create among teams.
