Characterising the nature of primary care patient safety incident reports in the England and Wales National Reporting and Learning System: a mixed-methods agenda-setting study for general practice.



    Management and analysis of incident reporting data must be enhanced in order to realize the potential for learning and improvement from reporting activities. This publication explored primary care incidents reported in England and Wales over an 8-year period. Investigators found inconsistencies and gaps in information collected, including a lack of defined reasons explaining why incidents occurred. Despite weaknesses in the data, they were able to categorize the types of incidents and prioritize system improvements needed to optimizeincident reporting as a patient safety improvement strategy.
