Evidence Tables for Chapter 36. Monitoring Patient Safety Problems (NEW)

The layout of this evidence table is customized based on the data reported by the included studies. Some columns in the evidence tables for other PSP topics are not included in this table or merged with other columns. For example, the “Description of Organization” column is merged into the “Context” column. There is no “Theory or Logic Model” column in this table because none of the included studies reported such data. The customized layout allows the data collected to fit into the table appropriately.
