This study recruited participants from a patient advocacy forum to complete an online survey. A significant proportion noted safety incidents in the course of managing chronic illness, including falls, adverse drug events, and errors in diagnosis or treatment. These results underscore the need to include patients in efforts to improve the safety of chronic disease care.
