Disclosing Harmful Pathology Errors to Patients


Medical errors are unfortunately common. In the United States, Institute of Medicine proposed a set of guidelines for mitigating and disclosing errors. In order to implement these recommendations in pathology, it will require a better understanding of how errors occur in pathology, the relationship between pathologists and treating clinicians in reducing error, and pathologists’ experiences with and attitudes toward disclosure of medical error.This article aims to understand pathologists’ attitudes toward disclosing pathology error to treating clinicians and patients.
