Patientsäkerhetslag (2010:659)

This is the Swedish Patient Safety Act 2010. It is an important piece of legislation in that it controls who can treat certain patients for certain conditions. It could be viewed as a model for legislation in other countries - although in most countries there is existing legislation that covers most of the provisions.

Google Translate does do a reasonable job of translation but not perfect. This is a work in progress - it is published before the translation is actually finished because there is an immediate need to share some of this. Help with improving translation would be much appreciated.

No analysis is made here although some explanatory notes are given. Some comparisons to UK legislation/regulation are made. Use of a serif font indicates content is not from the translation of the original document.

Chapter 5 is the most important.
