Systems Error versus Physicians' Error: Finding the Balance in Medical Education.
Casarett, David; Helms, Charles
Academic Medicine, v74 n1 p19-22 Jan 1999
When physicians ascribe errors to systemic causes, they may be less likely to modify future behaviors and more likely to repeat past errors. Academic medical centers should balance protecting patients from errors that a systems approach can identify against providing optimal education for house officers by teaching them to focus also on personal reasons for errors.
