Nature of Medication Errors of Omission Identified Through Solicited Reports by Attending Physicians in an Academic Medical Center

Project Description: This was a cross-sectional study (approved by UF IRB) conducted 2002-2003 to determine nature and frequency of medication errors of omission from the perspective of attending physicians. Physicians were trained how to report errors that resulted in patient harm or errors that had 50% likelihood of resulting in harm. The study investigators reviewed medical charts and interviewed the physician reporters and their patients to obtain information on adverse outcome symptomatology, error etiology, and causality. (J.
