Communication and resolution programs (CRPs) are an important strategy supporting full disclosure and psychological healing after a medical adverse incident, and they are not yet widely integrated into health care. This commentary describes one patient’s experience with a medical error and the lack of opportunity to work with the hospital’s CRP. The commentary authors also discuss the characteristics of CRPs and information about their existence that minimize patient and family access to them.
