Assessing adverse events after chiropractic care at a chiropractic teaching clinic: an active-surveillance pilot study.

Pohlman KA, Funabashi M, Ndetan H, et al. J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2020;Epub Aug 31.

Research has identified barriers to voluntary event reporting among chiropractors. Based on patient symptom questionnaires, this study assessed the feasibility of an active surveillance reporting system to determine the frequency of adverse events (AEs) after treatment by chiropractic interns. Qualitative interviews suggest that the system was well-accepted and endorsed use of an electronic (versus paper) surveillance system.
