Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management is a peer-reviewed journal which considers patient safety and risk at all levels of the health care system, starting with the patient and including practitioners, managers, organizations, and policy makers.
This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, formerly named Clinical Risk, is a peer-reviewed journal. It builds on its roots in the UK to provide an international forum for the exchange of new knowledge and ideas in the fields of patient safety, risk management, and medico-legal issues.

It prioritizes evidence-based research papers and reviews, as well as commentaries on timely patient safety issues where there are implications for patient care, clinical and professional practice, health care governance, and policy. The Journal acknowledges the centrality of the case study in both medical and medico-legal practice, and promotes a multidisciplinary, mixed-methods approach to understanding and improving patient safety.

Papers commissioned by Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) provide insights to work on patient safety in the UK as well as medico-legal issues and clinical negligence cases with patient safety implications.
