Whistleblowing is a touchy subject no matter what profession you seem to be in and as this article in sBMJ outlines it is because of the fear of repurcussions.
Therefore it is this that needs to change if whistleblowing is to become more open and accepted. And like many ingrained problems within todays society, it is only through instilling best practice in 'Tomorrows Doctors' to use a schmultzy phrase that this can happen.
Yet it should be noted that only by reinforcing what good practice entails must be done alongside this as simply getting people to 'tell' more can in fact damage things if people are confused about what SHOULD be done in certain situations.
But what to you think?? What can be done to make whistleblowing more open? What are your opinions on the subject??
