In a nutshell: This study looked at online learning about patient safety for junior doctors in Ireland and asked if it is valuable. The participating doctors completed a baseline survey and a follow-up survey. The online initiative resulted in immediate improvements in self-reported knowledge such as knowing when and how to complete incident forms and disclosing errors to patients, and in attitudes towards error reporting. The interactive features were the most positive elements of the programme. The authors conclude that online training about medical errors improved junior doctors self-rated knowledge, attitudes and skills in Ireland.
