Danielle Ofri, Grand Rounds: Medical Error

November 20 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 am

Dr. Danielle Ofri, “Grand Rounds: Medical Error”

November 20 at 7:00am
Bondurant G100

About the Talk: Patient safety is a critical issue in medicine today. There is, rightly, a strong emphasis on systems approaches to improving medical care and decreasing error. However, medicine is fundamentally a human endeavor. Without attention to the human aspects of the medical enterprise–emotion, cognitive abilities, biases, communication–crucial aspects of patient safety will remain beyond our grasp.

About the Speaker: Danielle Ofri MD, PhD, is a physician at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, and a faculty member of NYU School of Medicine. She writes about medicine and the doctor-patient connection for the New York TimesSlate Magazine, and other publications.

Dr. Ofri is co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Bellevue Literary Review, the first literary journal to arise from a medical setting.  She is the author of a collection of books about the world of medicine, including “What Patients Say, What Doctors Hear”, “What Doctors Feel”, and “Medicine in Translation: Journeys with My Patients”.
