Improving the identification of adverse patient events helps clinicians better understand which patients may be at greatest risk for safety issues. Physicians and nurses will study the medical records of 300 cancer patients, looking for issues including adverse drug events, falls, infections, or radiation oncology and surgical complications. They will then compare their findings with those identified in existing reporting mechanisms to refine a screening tool, which will subsequently be made available to other hospitals and cancer research institutions.
