    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

    The term 'prevalence' of Medication errors usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Medication errors at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Medication errors refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Medication errors diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
