Responding to Medical Errors and Adverse Events
Some of the worst moments in practice are when you realize that a serious mistake has been made that has adverse consequences for a patient. In this webinar, we will discuss a six step process for how to approach these issues. We'll discuss medical issues, as well as how to communicate with the client and your staff. We'll also discuss strategies for understanding why errors happen and how to make them less likely to occur.
