PSR handles the vast majority of malpractice injuries in Sweden. PSR is a claims handling company which settles claims for malpractice on behalf of the insurance company owned by the Swedish county councils: the County Councils Mutual Insurance Company. A central issue in the law regulating patient injuries in Swedish health care is to define injuries that could have been avoided if a certain therapeutic/diagnostic procedure or a more appropriate method had been utilized. PSR arranged a multiprofessional conference regarding guidelines to decrease the number of malpractice injuries in the treatment of distal radius fractures. Among the most important issues defined were: To improve and standardize diagnostic imaging Patient information Early decision making in surgery and physical/occupational therapy A more well-defined indication for surgery, in which type of trauma, biological age and functional demands are considered in addition to radiographs Less stereotyped thinking in follow-up Controlled randomized trials.
