Failure can be an uncomfortable topic. It's natural to want to avoid events and situations which evoke difficult feelings for us. However, mistakes can be a powerful motivator and, if managed well, help us to improve our professional practice.

Health professions' institutions have an important role in creating an environment where students can learn from failure. In this month's Fast Facts we look at ten practical ways educators can promote a positive culture around managing mistakes and failure.
