Online Lecture Readings
You will be introduced to the vast range of risks in healthcare this week. We will review groups of risks to make the subject manageable. To begin with, we will ask and answer the basic question: What is risk? Flowing from this are other questions: Who is at risk? What types of damage does a risk lead to? Where do risks come from, or what
