Research has demonstrated gaps between pediatric patient, parent and physician preferences around disclosure of medical errors. This study enrolled chronically-ill pediatric patients (ages 8-18 years) and used qualitative approaches to explore their views on error disclosure. Participating children expressed strong preferences for error disclosure, apologies, genuine remorse and accountability, as well as a desire to be engaged in patient safety.
