Teaching medical students to recognise and report errors.

This commentary describes a project to assist medical students in understanding and reporting errors they encounter. The program included an introductory workshop, facilitated discussion about errors and the importance of reporting, and completion of a simulated error report. Results indicated that education could influence student ability and willingness to recognize and report errors during their clinical clerkship. A WebM&M commentary discussed an incident involving a medical student who failed to report an error.
