Improving incident reporting among physician trainees.

Krouss M, Alshaikh J, Croft L, et al. Journal of patient safety. 2019;15:308-310.

This pre–post study found that an educational intervention with resident physicians led to a significant increase in incident reports. The authors suggest that this intervention may enhance incident reporting in other institutions.
