Adverse Medical Events, Second Victim and Litigation Stress
An unanticipated adverse patient event and injury, or a medical error resulting in patient harm, can be a devastating experience for any healthcare professional. A subsequent medical malpractice claim exacerbates the ordeal. The emotional and physical duress felt by physicians and other clinicians after such an event can have detrimental effects on well-being and gravely affect their ability to participate effectively in any defense. The personal and professional pain may be unavoidable, but it can be mitigated. This educational presentation will raise your awareness of the impact adverse events have upon caregivers, and provide strategies that you and your organization may implement to facilitate recovery and promote caregiver well-being after an unanticipated outcome, and to improve your resilience in the setting of litigation.
