o Dr Paul Howat: The second victim - a narrative literature search
About Dr Paul Howat’s topic: The term “second victim” was coined in 2000 by Wu, who proposed that the doctor involved in a poor clinical outcome could be regarded as a second victim in addition to the patient. The narrative literature review looks at the lived experience of doctors as second victims, what helps and what harms their recovery.
