Try using the SELECT DISTINCT RECORDS option under the DATABASE menu

If they are at the row level, you could try something like this on the detail section (right click, section expert, then hit the x2 by SUPPRESS)

if {table.field} = next({table.field})
then yes
else no

Create a group at the level that is causing the duplication, in your report it looks like yuo will need 2 groups patient_id and care_event_counter and move the fields into the group 2 footer and suppress the details section.
