Research on human subjects entails unique challenges, particularly when risks to patient safety are under scrutiny. Therefore, many factors must be considered in studydesign. This chapter serves to provide a broad overview of commonly used frameworks and methods for injury research related to patient safety. We review methods used to reveal hazards in health care, analyze and prioritize the risks associated with these hazards, and evaluate interventions to reduce these hazards.
