Following personal experience with errors, providers anecdotally report a greater sensitivity to risks. Research has shown that the greater the perceived consequences associated with missed detection of an event, the higher the likelihood that the event will be detected1. Higher perceived consequences are associated with greater adoption of prevention strategies2. We are developing an innovative program to manipulate attitudes and behaviors related to compliance and attention to risk reduction strategies through simulations that expose nurses to embedded error situations.
