"Identifying and measuring patient harms. A study of measuring adverse events in hospitalised patients by the Global Trigger Tool record review method"

Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag:
Patient harms, or adverse events due to medical care, is a major global health problem. Identifying and measuring them are challenging. This PhD aimed to improve the Global Trigger Tool (GTT) record review method to identify and measure patient harms. The method involves searching through randomly selected patient records for predefined triggers (situations) and corresponding adverse events by a review team. We evaluated whether turnovers within review team, automatic trigger identification and increasing the sample size affected the rate of identified adverse events. The study concludes keeping one reviewer consistent, increasing sample size and using automatic trigger identification. As this method is in use in all Norwegian hospitals, these adjustments will reduce the review time and improve the quality of the results. With further development, the automatic trigger identification system could identify patients at risk in order to prevent patient harm from happening in real-time.
