CME WEBINAR
WebinarAdverse 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.

WebinarReducing Medication Errors: Strategies for Delivering Safer Patient Care and Minimizing Your Liability

Medication errors can harm patients and create liability exposure for healthcare providers. Medication error was the fifth most frequent allegation in NORCAL Group claims closed over a five-year period.* Issues arising in such claims include failure to instruct patients regarding medication; failure to confirm appropriate dosages; failure to manage dose changes; negligent administration of medication; and problems with prescription transmission.

Factors that contribute to medication errors include comorbid conditions that require multiple medications; lack of or inconsistent systems to ensure correct patient, drug, dose, route, and time; poor communication, follow-up, and monitoring; and inadequate documentation. By proactively applying risk management strategies, clinicians can treat their patients more safely and effectively, while minimizing liability associated with medication management.
