Abstract: The study, first released in 2005, looks at medication errors and how they can be reduced. The authors carried out a prospective hazard and improvement analysis, which involved a review of existing research, analysis of existing evidence by experts and calculation of the benefits and costs of three interventions that might reduce the number of medication incidents.
