BACKGROUND Patients with cancer are at risk of injury during treatment. Some injuries are preventable, but prevention requires knowledge about the hazards. Aims To identify hazards and injuries relating to Danish patients with cancer (types and severity) and to test three different methods of identifying cancer-specific hazards. METHODS Adverse events in(More)
PURPOSE Knowledge about cancer patients' preferences in health care is important because it enables care to be patient centered. However, the literature does not provide an overview. The aim of this study was to identify the dimensions of hospital-based cancer care that patients evaluate the most important using Patient-rated importance as a method. DATA(More)

They can, for example, also be used to select focus areas in the health care sector. In this article two large national surveys of patient-experienced quality are compared. The advantages and disadvantages of the applied methods and(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of non-intercepted prescription errors and the risk factors involved, including the impact of computerised order entry (CPOE) systems on such errors, are unknown. Our objective was to determine the incidence, type, severity, and related risk factors of non-intercepted prescription dose errors. PATIENTS AND METHODS A prospective,(More)
Due to an increased cancer survival, more cancer patients are referred to follow-up after primary treatment. Knowledge of patient safety during follow-up is sparse. OBJECTIVE To examine patient-reported errors during cancer follow-up and identify factors associated with errors. DESIGN A national survey on cancer patients' experiences of treatment and(More)
INTRODUCTION Knowledge about patient safety issues after primary treatment of cancer is sparse. METHODS The present article is a retrospective analysis of adverse events (AEs) after primary cancer treatment to characterise the types of AEs and their consequences. A total of 724 AEs reported from 2010 to 2013 were identified via the Danish Patient Safety(More)
