Research has established that disclosure of medical errors to patients and families is essential for maintaining a therapeutic alliance. However, less is known about what patients and families may expect regarding the disclosure of near misses. In this interview study, parents of hospitalized children expressed varying preferences surrounding disclosure of errors, near misses, and the degree to which they desired their children participate in the disclosure process.
