The Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Global Trigger Tool is widely used to identify adverse events. This systematic review found variation in how the tool is implemented, with differing rates of adverse events detected. The authors suggest modifying the trigger tool to capture errors of omission and to assess the preventability of events identified.
