Nurses and other health care professionals need to understand methods for analyzing medical errors to prevent them from recurring in the future. One widely used process to examine errors is root cause analysis (RCA). The authors describe their approach to engage nursing students in RCA using problem-based learning. Students conduct a mock RCA based on an actual medical error reported either in the media or literature. The cases used for the RCA are selected by the students based on their particular area of interest. Watch this video and make sure you read the article.
