Modern health care is a complex and constantly changing system, due to technological and organisational advances. Patient safety has a central role in many organisations. However, it can (unconsciously) be threatened, leading to adverse events. Patient safety education is primarily provided merely and only implicitly, to residents and is incorporated too little in the student curriculum. A good curriculum fits the concept of life-long learning and ensures attention for patient safety throughout careers. Embedding patient safety education in medical curricula will lead to a generation of doctors that is more aware of patient safety issues, amidst the challenges of the constant changing and complex work environment.
