This project studied the epidemiologic viability of using an injury surveillance system to track outpatient adverse drug events (ADEs) treated in hospital emergency departments. The authors found that the system could play a useful role in helping to understand outpatient ADEs, identifying areas for research, and monitoring ADE prevention.
