A narrative review of strategies to increase patient safety event reporting by residents.

Aaron M, Webb A, Luhanga U. J Grad Med Educ. 2020;12(4):415-424.

In this narrative review, the authors examined current literature on effective strategies to increase patient safety event reporting among residents and trainees. The most sustainable interventions combined strategies that successfully minimized physician involvement time, incorporated accessible event reporting into existing electronic health record systems, and became integrated into the normal patient care workflow. The authors also noted a lack of studies involving residents and trainees in root cause analysis following event reporting.
