Why is it important?

Prevention of "preventable risks" is possible with a programmatic approach, and this paper captures exactly that.


Healthcare is about dealing with the vulnerable (patients) and unknowns (diseases), and there are several opportunities for healthcare professionals to improvise patient care practice, the PRIME program has the theory and practical experience to validate that this approach works!! All the best to many more hospital leaders, who'd want to implement PRIME at their hospitals.....
