When bad things happen: training medical students to anticipate the aftermath of medical errors.

Musunur S, Waineo E, Walton E, et al. Acad Psychiatry. 2020;44(5):586-591.

This article describes the impact of an interactive session with second-year medical students utilizing case-based learning, small group discussion, and video vignettes intended to prepare healthcare providers to anticipate and understand the impact of medical errors. Pre- and post-surveys found that this one-hour, small-group session increased medical students’ understanding of the impact of medical errors and adverse events and the resources available to support providers.
