Disclosure & Apology Module 6: Disclosure in Context

Disclosure & Apology Module 6: Disclosure in Context 

This section will “broaden the lens” to consider disclosure across a spectrum of many different kinds of clinical events and settings.

While most clinicians understand the role for disclosure after an obvious medical error, many still struggle with what to say.

They also question whether to move forward with disclosure in cases when it is not as clear whether something—or what exactly—has “gone wrong.”
