In order to provide guidelines on effective methods to examine critical incidents, this review studied 12 techniques from high-risk industries to create an approach in health care. Investigators identified six applicable techniques, and they report on the characteristics of each model in studying outcomes, errors, and causation. In acknowledging existing variation among techniques, the authors call for future research on the validation and effectiveness of current systems for analysis.
