Patient Safety Tool: Adverse Event Disclosure Guide

The Oregon Patient Safety Commission offers a free, downloadable guide designed to help physicians and healthcare organizations establish their own adverse event disclosure programs.

While the guide is written for Oregon providers, its content and purpose can be broadly applied to all healthcare providers. The document includes guidance on what, when, to whom and by whom adverse event information should be disclosed. It also includes samples policies from other institutions.

Download the adverse event disclosure guide (PDF) for use in your facility.
