Accountability: Challenges to Getting It Right

This article proposes that it is the wrong question, and the failure to apply patient safety science in clinical practice is contributing to the ambiguity fueling the debate. To transform accountability from a source of confusion to a powerful tool for fulfilling health care's fiduciary responsibility to protect patients from harm, we need to reframe our approach. This article presents the science and strategies to create clarity that will redirect the dialogue from a debate in which accountability resides to one about learning for improvement when adverse events occur.
