ASDSA is a 501(c)(6) organization dedicated to advocacy for patient safety. Over 6400 board certified dermatologists belong to ASDSA, and those members are committed to safely delivering dermatologic surgery to patients. The Northwestern Department of Dermatology comprises board certified dermatologists, clinicians and researchers also dedicated to patient safety and medical research.
We are a group of dermatologists and researchers committed to improving safety outcomes.
It is a voluntary national reporting registry that collects data on adverse events that occur during/as a result of dermatologic procedures including skin cancer surgery, laser, and cosmetic procedures.
It is open to reporting by dermatologists and non-dermatologist physicians and their staff.
The CAPER Registry is supervised by board-certified dermatologists, clinicians, and researchers. It is run by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association (ASDSA) and Northwestern University’s Department of Dermatology
