The full-text studies were searched for after studying their abstracts and relevancy or potential relevancy. The selected studies were searched for using the keywords: management, clinical, risk, monitoring, instrument, hospital, as well as other established criteria (full text, reviewed periodicals, English language) and the publishing period of research conclusions in the last ten years, i.e. 2010-19. We finally included 10 studies that contained the required criteria. The developed CRM instruments are based on the studies of literature and expert knowledge. Hospitals often use existing risk analysis instruments for CRM. For higher efficiency of CRM, it is necessary to identify and analyze individual clinical risks and find suitable solutions. Clinical risks can be decreased by using suitable instruments. The total level of CRM in hospitals is possible to be measured, monitored and regularly assessed, which contributes to its efficiency increase.
