Piccardi C, Detollenaere J, Bussche PV, et al. International journal for equity in health. 2018;17:114.

Although prior research suggests that racial and ethnic disparities in health care place certain patients at increased risk for adverse events in the inpatient setting, less is known about the effect of such disparities in the outpatient setting. This systematic review found that vulnerable populations including women and minorities are more likely to experience adverse events in primary care.
