The PREOS site has been designed to enable patients to anonymously report their experiences of osteopathic care. This is done online with a user-friendly process. The information gathered from these reports will be analysed by the research team at the National Council for Osteopathic Research (NCOR). Any trends in reporting will be fed back anonymously to the osteopathic profession to improve patient care. We will build on the positive aspects of care and to help avoid future occurrences of poor experiences or adverse events.
NCOR work in research ranges from directly carrying out research projects to disseminating research findings to the osteopathic community, osteopathic patients, other healthcare providers and the general public.
Collecting patients. reports on adverse events in this central way can help us gain a clearer understanding of the type of adverse events that occur, why they arise, how often they happen, and how we can avoid them in future.
We know how important your privacy and anonymity is, that's why the information provided on this website will always be stored securely within the reporting system’s database, which is independent from the NCOR website
