CRICO’s closed claim malpractice data for seven CRICO-insured Partners Healthcare System hospitals and their outpatient practices with incident dates between 2000-2007 was used to help develop a self-assessment tool comprised of clinical vignettes and questions to be completed by test-takers in different clinical roles.
