Patient safety reporting systems: A literature review of international practice

10 Nov 2016 | Adverse Events

To inform a scheduled review of the National Reportable Events Policy, the Health Quality & Safety Commission has conducted a brief scan of overseas literature on patient safety reporting systems (PSRS).

Findings from the literature scan, along with feedback from stakeholder interviews in May and June 2016, will help identify key issues to explore during the policy review. Findings will also inform a wider review of the adverse event learning programme’s strategic direction.

This report summarises the findings of the literature scan.
