Appelbaum NP, Dow A, Mazmanian PE, et al. Medical education. 2016;50:343-50.

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) program encourages resident participation in patient safety programs, including reporting errors and near misses. This survey found that perceived psychological safety was a critical predictor of residents' willingness to report events, highlighting the importance of an overall culture of safety in encouraging error reporting.
