Communication and Resolution After an Adverse Health Care Incident.

Colorado Senate; Pettersen B; Tate J; Tipper K; McKean H.

Communication-and-resolution mechanisms are seen as important approaches to improving transparency and healing after an adverse event. This state bill, referred to as the "Colorado Candor Act," protects conversations between organizations, clinicians, patient, and families from legal discoverability and outlines criteria to guarantee that protection.
