Morbidity and mortality conference in emergency medicine residencies and the culture of safety.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
This survey of emergency medicine residency program directors revealed wide variability in the structure and emphasis of morbidity and mortality (M&M) conferences, a key component of patient safety training for graduate medical education. Not all conferences supported a blame-free approach to errors or included follow-up to errors, suggesting that M&M conferences could be better designed to support safety culture.
