Clinical Risk considers patient safety and risk at both the organisational and the practitioner level. It publishes peer-reviewed papers, reviews and commentaries on all patient safety issues where there are implications for service provision, clinical and professional practice and management. The AvMA Medical and Legal Journal and the Healthcare & Law Digest, both included within Clinical Risk, contain articles on current medico-legal issues and reports on a wide range of recently settled clinical negligence cases.
Already benefiting from an active Editorial Committee with clinical, managerial and legal input, one or two special focus issues a year will be guest-edited by experts in the field.
This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)
