A great deal of research is available about patient harm in hospital, but less is known about errors in primary care. This evidence scan collates empirical evidence that addresses the following questions:

  • How is harm measured in primary care?
  • What are the levels of harm in primary care?
  • What are the main causes or sources of harm in primary care?
  • Is there unpublished or ongoing work or media stories about this topic?
