Abstract

Critically ill newborns receiving intensive and complex care may be subject to medical errors and adverse events. Like most physicians, neonatologists do not feel comfortable disclosing their errors and may need assistance in learning how to do so. Understanding useful models of error disclosure, and communication training, will likely be beneficial.
