Patient incident reporting is an important way to promote safer health care. The barriers for reporting can be organizational (leadership, culture, lack of feedback, etc.) or individual (time pressure, perceived competence, attitude, etc.). In this study, we examined what kinds of ICT-related incidents health professionals observe in Finland, how they react to them and the reasons for non-reporting. Our data was collected using a nationwide survey during the Spring of 2020. The theory of planned behaviour by Ajzen served as our framework for explaining non-reporting behaviour. While we found that attitudes, subjective norms and perceived behavioural control all explain non-reporting, our factor model based on our confirmatory factor analysis did not directly match Ajzen’s theory.
