Patient safety incident reporting is an important tool for characterizing events and identifying opportunities for patient safety improvements. This longitudinal study describes chiropractic safety incidents reported to an online reporting and learning system used in the UK, Canada, and Australia. One-quarter of incidents related to post-treatment distress or pain. Documented areas for learning and safety improvement included reducing patient falls, improving continuity of care, and improving recognition of serious pathology requiring escalation to other care providers.
