Quality and Safety in Health Care Oct 2010 packed with RxInformatics

10/27/2010

Quality and Safety in Health Care is not one of my primary journals for review.  Perhaps it should be.  I will be adding it to my RSS feed.  There are over 20 articles in the October issue that knocked me over.  Some deserve a blog post and commentary all of their own.  Below are the ones I intend to check out and perhaps comment more.  I had some trouble with formatting the links, so you can find the links to the individual articles here.
