I took this course because I have an interest in the area of safety in health care. The fact that this was a Johns Hopkins course made it doubly attractive for me since JHU is doing a lot of great work in the areas of safety sciences. This course is probably best for someone who has NO idea of the concepts and philosophies behind the sciences of safety in hospitals. The ideas presented are derived from real life implementations so they have a practical ring to them. The course on the whole was easy but the quiz was not straight forward which I liked, simply because it made me refer to the notes once more and completely grasp the ideas. The peer assessments were also mildly challenging and I had fun finishing them. They were not a walk in the park which meant I needed to think hard about what I wanted to talk about. At 5 weeks, this course is one week too long. In a regular academic setting, this would probably be a day long seminar. ...

Even though I did not learn much from the course, it is still a good course and the presenters are people who live 'safety' every day of their work.
