Prior research has examined what factors may influence learning from mistakes. Researchers describe their analysis of more than 600 cases discussed at educational radiology conferences over several years. They were able to identify numerous opportunities for improving learning from error, including using positive cases (e.g., near misses or difficult cases in which extra effort helped avert an error) and targeting teaching to address recurrent deficiencies.
