In a nutshell:  This study explored medication error reporting (MER) systems in different healthcare contexts. Sixteen medication safety experts in sixteen countries responded to a descriptive online questionnaire. Several factors related to the national context of MER systems, i.e., the operational environment, were identified to impact successful development and implementation of these systems. The authors concluded that operational environments of MER systems must be constructed to support functionality of these systems, and need to be improved in many countries.
