In a nutshell:  Researchers examined aspects that may influence a patient’s willingness to report a safety error to a national reporting system and to bring their medicines into hospital to allow checking. Beliefs about control were the strongest predictors of patients’ intentions. Their expectations about what is ‘normal’ behaviour influence the extent to which they may participate in patient safety initiatives. The researchers concluded that initiatives to improve patient involvement in safety should consider the extent to which people feel in control and capable of performing the behaviour.
