GARCIA SOLANO, Marta  and  GRUPO DE DIVULGACION DEL CONOCIMIENTO CIENTIFICO EN SEGURIDAD DEL PACIENTE et al. To promote knowledge on patient safety: the case of the Biblioteca Breve de Seguridad del Paciente (Brief Patient Safety Library). Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 2019, vol.93, e201903010.  Epub Sep 07, 2020. ISSN 2173-9110.


Within the framework of the Patient Safety Strategy 2015-2020, the Regional Ministry of Health of the Community of Madrid developed two lines of action to consolidate the Patient Safety Culture through the dissemination of scientific knowledge in Patient Safety. The main objective was to identify, disseminate and improve access to relevant information on patient safety for patient-citizens, professionals and the organization itself through a pool of resources accessible on the Internet and intranet.


After an analysis of the tools and communication channels available to disseminate knowledge in patient safety, the references of interest were selected by a group of experts, a consultation tool was developed in a navigable format on the internet and various dissemination actions were carried out to make it known.


The Biblioteca Breve de Seguridad del Paciente (Brief Patient Safety Library) was developed, accessible for navigation on the web of the Community of Madrid and as a download document, with 154 references, structured in 4 areas: General resources (74 references), Resources by thematic area (51 references), Videos and multimedia (12 references) and Organizations and websites of interest (17 references).


The Biblioteca Breve de Seguridad del Paciente (Brief Patient Safety Library) can help to promote the safety culture in health centers and to achieve greater citizen involvement in their safety, by providing reliable information on this crosscutting dimension of clinical practice.
