This qualitative study explored physicians experience allowing for failure for education purposes in clinical training. This study found that error permission (allowing errors to arise naturally and not preventing them) was a common strategy, particularly in procedures, medication dosing, communication, and patient management. Allowing supervised failure was perceived to be an important element of trainee development and was not considered to be a threat to patient safety.
