Abstract

In recent years there has been an emphasis on the reduction of medical errors in patient management, especially in the hospital setting. There is no identified reporting structure for the prehospital setting like that used in some hospitals in Australia. The Australian Incident Monitoring Study (AIMS) has been developed and used predominantly by anaesthetists and in the intensive care unit to report actual management errors, near misses, and positive events.1 The main identifier of prehospital errors in Victoria has been the Consultative Committee on Road Traffic Fatalities (CCRTF). This group identified that 76 (84 ) of prehospital problems (n = 90) in 2002/2003 contributed to the patient s death, with 67 (75 ) being actual patient management problems. It was noted that between the 1997/1998 and the 2002/2003 review there was a 20 increase in rural road traffic incidents and fatalities.2/7 With total Victorian road traffic fatalities decreasing by 28 over the last . . .
