Date of publication:  February 2014

Publication type:  Journal article

In a nutshell:  Reviewers from England explored how nurses feel about disclosing patient safety incidents to patients and if there are any barriers to disclosure. The findings suggested that nurses have a key role in supporting doctors when disclosing incidents to patients, but that they may not be well prepared to disclose incidents to patients independently. Barriers to nurse involvement in incident disclosure included few opportunities for training and many conflicting roles within nursing. Nurses may have a greater role to play in safety incident error disclosure to patients, but they need better training and support to enable them to do this.
