Openness and honesty when things go wrong: the professional duty of candour

Openness and honesty when things go wrong: the professional duty of candour This joint consultation (running until the 5th January 2015) asks for views on guidance which is designed to support doctors, nurses and midwives in fulfilling their professional duty to be open and honest about mistakes. It also calls on clinical leaders and employers to support doctors, nurses and midwives by creating cultures in the workplace that are open, honest, and where people learn from mistakes so that future patients are protected from harm.General Medical Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council
