DescriptionThe Second International Incident Disclosure Conference in York welcomes all interested stakeholders in exploring new evidence, current thinking and lively debate around models and practice of incident disclosure. Incident disclosure is of critical significance to contemporary health care communication, management and governance and is being increasingly referred to in relation to improving both quality and safety of healthcare. Research has already shown that disclosure may re-establish patients’ and relatives’ trust in the system, support clinical processes being made safer, and prevent organisations and individuals from entering into time-consuming complaints resolution and expensive legal processes. While for the majority, the debates about whether incident disclosure should take place have moved on to those which concentrate on the best way to support, enact and evaluate the consequences of incident disclosure, the evidence suggests that disclosure conversations are often still limited and guarded.
