Mixed method assessment of an educational intervention bringing together interprofessional clinicians with patients and families from hospital advisory councils to discuss error disclosure and prevention. Patient focus groups and orientation sessions informed curriculum and assessment design. A pre-post survey with qualitative and quantitative questions was used to assess patients and families’ and clinician experiences and attitudes about collaborative safety education including participant hopes, fears, perceived value of learning experience and challenges.
