National Electronic Injury Surveillance System-Cooperative Adverse Drug Event Surveillance Project
The National Electronic Injury Surveillance Sustem -- Cooperative Adverse Drug Event Surveillance Project (NEISS-CADES) is an expansion of the Consumer Product Safety Commission's (CPSC) National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), used to monitor consumer-product related injuries. NEISS-CADES collects data on all adverse drug events (ADEs) treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments, whether or not associated with consumer products. NEISS data are collected from a nationally representative sample of U.S. hospital emergency departments; NEISS-CADES uses a subsample of those emergency departments for its data collection.
