The Safety II framework and organizational resilience both focus on what goes right in healthcare and adjusting to disturbances through anticipation, monitoring, responding, and learning. This narrative review highlights recent research conducted within a Safety II and resilience framework such as Learning from Excellence and debriefing "what went right" after simulation training. The authors suggest learning from errors or what goes right should be reframed simply as learning.

Medication-related adverse events (MRE) occur frequently during anesthesia care and more research into preventing them is needed. This article presents a descriptive analysis of the MRE reported to the Spanish Anaesthesia Incident Reporting System database during the decade from 2008 through 2017. Of the 1970 MRE identified, the highest number (42%) occurred during the administration phase, and a greater percentage of administration-related MRE resulted in harm to patients (44% as opposed to 31% over all 1,970 events). The authors identified patterns and specific causes of MRE that they suggest could be mitigated using proven systems solutions.
