This is an important new report from the OECD on the financial costs of adverse safety events, with data from a wide range of countries.  As you might expect, these costs are substantial, and the report makes the key point that preventing these events would cost a lot less than paying for their consequences.

Diagnostic error is repeatedly emphasized as a major, under-addressed problem, but there are no data cited on the costs of diagnostic error specifically.  We really need some research on this.
