Encouraging adverse event reporting among health care providers, including medical trainees, is critical to improving patient safety. This qualitative study convened focus groups to elucidate what factors support event reporting among medical residents. Residents were more likely to use reporting tools when they had received training about the process, and identified specific interventions, to encourage reporting, such as role modeling by faculty.
