RUIZ IBANEZ, Carlos; FRANCO, Astolfo; MEJIA HOYOS, Hector  y  FAJARDO, Roosevelt. PERSPECTIVES ON PATIENT SAFETY. INTERVIEW WITH COLOMBIAN LEADERS. Rev. ing. biomed. [online]. 2010, vol.4, n.8, pp.10-21. ISSN 1909-9762.

Since its conception one of the main functions of Biomedical Engineers has been to ensure patient safety in the clinical environment through the management of biomedical technology and the investigation of technological incidents. At present it is not difficult to find Biomedical Engineers as a cornerstone in interdisciplinary teams that analyze adverse events in IPS in Colombia. Even in changing technological, socio-demographic and regulatory contexts, the Biomedical Engineers have had the opportunity to continue developing and evolving their work around patient safety through a diversity of skills including training, assessment, management and design of technology. In this process, the effective interdisciplinary teamwork, the collaboration among health care settings and the proper transfer of knowledge through champions have been important factors. This interview is dedicated to these champions and the technological and cultural management that they have undertaken in their institutions to manage patient safety and increase the quality in health care; with the result of transforming their institutions into pioneers in Colombia. This article presents the opinions of a group of patient safety "champions" regarding the impact of government policies, the adverse events process and the role of the Biomedical Engineer in patient safety.
