This two-part report focuses on the experience of committing a medical error, along with strategies to reduce future events. The first part provides a series of shared stories from clinicians who discuss their personal experiences in making medical errors. The second part uses six case studies of errors as a background for expert analysis and discussion. The report also provides a motivation for reporting by explaining the benefits that come from such vigilance and how changing systems can lead to improved safety.
