Pohlman KA, Funabashi M, Ndetan H, et al. J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2020;43:845-854.
Research has identified barriers to voluntary event reporting among chiropractors. Based on patient symptom questionnaires, this study assessed the feasibility of an active surveillance reporting system to determine the frequency of adverse events (AEs) after treatment by chiropractic interns. Qualitative interviews suggest that the system was well-accepted and endorsed use of an electronic (versus paper) surveillance system.

Children are vulnerable to errors in various health care settings. This review identified thematic factors that uniquely affect the safety of pediatric patients such as physiological development and dependency on adults for care. Safety interventions included training programs and monitoring adverse events. Medication errors were the main patient safety concern identified in the literature.
Pohlman KA, Carroll L, Hartling L, et al. J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2016;39:487-493.
This study used the AHRQ Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture to assess safety culture in pediatric chiropractic offices. Respondents generally had a positive view of safety culture compared to 2014 benchmarking data, but some expressed concerns about the effect of production pressures on safety.
Pohlman KA, Carroll L, Hartling L, et al. J Evid Based Complementary Altern Med. 2016;21:105-109.
This survey of pediatric chiropractors found that time pressure and concerns about patients' responses were the most common barriers to participating in voluntary reporting and learning systems. It is likely that this practitioner type must improve its safety culture in order for incident reporting to be a fruitful safety strategy.
