Incidence, nature and causes of medication errors in hospitalised patients in Middle Eastern countries: a systematic review protocol. [Protocol]. PROSPERO [online], CRD42015019693. Available from: https://dx.doi.org/10.15124/CRD42015019693
The review will consider studies, which focus on errors in hospitalised patients (of any age or speciality) in any of the countries of the Middle East. Studies of hospital practitioners (or other key stakeholders) which capture data on causes of errors will also be included. Quantitative outcomes are related to each of the review questions as follows: the incidence of medication errors and incidence of classifications of prescribing, administration and dispensing errors; the nature (e.g. classification, severity, patient outcomes) of errors; causes and contributory factors leading to errors.
