The Technical Series on Safer Primary Care is a series of nine monographs, which explore the magnitude and nature of harm in the primary care setting from a number of different angles, and through this provides some possible solutions and practical next steps for improving safety.
Each monograph describes the scope, approach, potential solutions, practical next steps, concluding remarks, and then provides links to online tool kits and manuals to provide practical suggestions for countries and organizations that have committed to moving forward with this agenda.

Objectives of the technical series: (i) to raise awareness about the causes and consequences of unsafe primary care; (ii) to provide accessible summaries about key issues to address when striving for safer primary care; and (iii) to help increase knowledge about how to design and deliver safer primary care.
