ASDSA Launches Patient Safety Database Gathering Adverse Events During Dermatologic Procedures

Posted By American Med Spa Association, Tuesday, February 23, 2021

The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association (ASDSA) and the Northwestern University Department of Dermatology have announced the official kickoff of the Cutaneous Procedures Adverse Events Reporting (CAPER) system. This voluntary reporting system gathers patients’ adverse events (AEs) encountered during dermatologic surgery procedures. CAPER will help with safety monitoring for the specialty, identify practice and/or education gaps associated with adverse events, and identify any potential risk factors for adverse events.
CAPER is a registry overseen by a group of board-certified dermatologists, clinicians and researchers with more than 20 years of experience in patient care and physician advocacy who are committed to improving safety outcomes. The collaboration between Northwestern University and ASDSA will ensure that CAPER becomes the common place for dermatologic surgeons and their staff to report adverse events from devices, drugs or biologics.
