DH to launch crackdown on prescribing errors

Comment

In aviation, systems are designed to reduce errors. The pilots aren't constantly blamed and told to try harder. Look at Martin Bromiley's human factors work featured in Matthew Syed's Black Box Thinking, and the culture/hierarchy barriers in Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers. It is a system designed to produce errors. Not duff clinicians who need a good beating or yet more training.
