Praise & Reviews
“Dr. Farrow has written the essential handbook of patient safety books. As a surgeon and healthcare executive, he draws on his own rich experiences to highlight the 20 key strategies to prevent adverse outcomes. I warmly recommend ‘Frontline Patient Safety’ to all health professionals.”

“Dr Farrow has brought together the battle grounds of modern warfare and the emergency unit. In both, the next challenge may not be precisely predicted but our response may be practiced over and over again. It is this attention to a learned, tested, modified and retested response that in Glen’s experience leads to success in both” theatres” This book is an intriguing and pleasurable way to learn true Safety and Quality in action”.
