> Health Affairs is planning a theme issue on Emerging Priorities in Patient Safety, to be published in November 2018. Nearly twenty years after the landmark report, “To Err is Human,” we are interested in exploring progress, lessons, remaining challenges, and emerging issues in patient safety.
> 
> The theme issue will inform high-level policy discussion and future practice by exploring progress in patient safety in recent years, identifying areas of ongoing and emerging need, promoting understanding of factors that inhibit and facilitate safety, and presenting evidence and reports on promising practices and approaches to improving safety from a range of perspectives. In addition to pieces that focus on the US health care system, we are also interested in work that offers lessons or insights from industries outside of health care and around the globe.
> 
> We plan to publish about 20 peer-reviewed articles in the issue, including several invited overview papers that will explore recent history and developments—where the field has been and where it’s headed—roles for institutions and individuals, and factors that contribute to safe or unsafe environments in health care.
> 
> In filling out the issue, we will put a premium on empirical work--original research, systematic reviews, well-designed case studies--that presents evidence and analysis aimed at contributing to our knowledge and supporting future decision making. We will also consider a small number of commentaries and we welcome submissions from leading researchers and scholars, analysts, industry experts, and health and health care stakeholders.
> 
> REQUEST FOR ABSTRACTS 
> 
> 
> We invite all interested authors to submit abstracts for consideration for this issue. Editors will review the abstracts and, for those that best fit our vision and goals for the issue, invite authors to submit full papers for consideration for the issue.
> 
> In order to be considered, abstracts must be submitted no later than 11:59PM Eastern time, November 27, 2017. We regret that we will not be able to consider any abstracts submitted after that date.
> 
> Topics of interest include the following:
> 
> The where and how of errors: Incidence, determinants, responses, lessons
> 
> Hospitals, including inpatient, ED, ICU
> Outpatient, home, and community settings
> Medication safety/errors
> Device safety
> Diagnostic accuracy and errors
> Vulnerable populations: children, elders, cognitive limitations, language barriers
> Environmental factors that facilitate and inhibit safety
> 
> Workflow and organizational structure, culture, teamwork, communication
> Human factors and work conditions
> Defensive medicine, disclosure programs, legal issues
> Understanding different approaches to and tools for improvement
> 
> Incentives and disincentives: pay-for-performance, penalties, etc.
> Creating a learning culture, workforce training and education
> Systems engineering
> Role of the patient
> Evidence-based practice, patient safety organizations, standards, guidelines, self-regulation vs. oversight, etc.
> Information and information technology: electronic medical records, “big data,” predictive analytics and smart systems, etc.
> Ensuring progress and effective solutions
> 
> Forming policies that reflect practice realities
> Using data effectively
> Challenges surrounding measurement
> Disseminating knowledge and promoting rapid learning
> First-person narratives that touch on these themes would also be of interest for consideration for our Narrative Matters section.
> 
> The list above is a guide and highlights a number of priority areas, but it is not exhaustive. We welcome submissions on complementary and related topics, as well.
> 
> TIMETABLE 
> 
> The editors will evaluate submitted abstracts and, in mid-December, will invite authors of selected abstracts to submit their work for consideration for the issue. Invited papers will be due at the journal by June 2, 2018.
> 
> Following submission, full manuscripts will be subjected to peer review from June to July 2018, with revision beginning in July and running through September 2018. Copyediting and production for the issue will take place in October 2018, with publication scheduled for November 2018.
