Risk Management for Practitioners Risk Management Video CME Course Empowers and Educates Healthcare Providers to Reduce Their Liability Risk.New "Law for Doctors" CME Course for 2020.
Med-Challenger is excited to announce the release of Risk Management for Practitioners. This new "law for doctors" healthcare risk management course is developed to help physicians and other healthcare professionals understand the malpractice process and learn how to protect themselves against patient lawsuits while offering medical malpractice CME and medical negligence CME.
Risk Management for Practitioners includes clinical and legal pearls that insurance companies and lawyers don’t always volunteer. The tools are helpful both to providers who are involved in a legal process and those fortunate enough to not have yet had to deal with a claim, both of whom have an incentive to learn about malpractice and about protecting their livelihood and career.
What's in the Risk Management for Practitioners CME Course?
Upon completion of the course you'll understand the malpractice process and learn how to protect yourself against lawsuits.
The course content is contained in 12 engaging video lessons with review self-assessment questions and answers by Victor Waters, MD, JD, FCLM
- Defensive Medicine
- Offensive Medicine
- The Malpractice Claims Process
- You’re Sued, Now What?
- Deposition Tips
- To Settle or Not to Settle?
- Trial tips for Doctors
- 10 Secrets Lawyers Don’t Want You To Know
- Lawsuit Consequences
- 5 Tips: EMR (Electronic Medical Records)
- Informed Consent
- Pain Medication and Liability
The 25 review questions allow physicians and nurses to earn required CME credit.
The author, Victor Waters, MD, JD, FCLM, states, "Education about malpractice and how to prevent it could be the difference between a long career and one cut short by the emotional, professional and financial consequences of a damaging lawsuit. This risk management for physicians material can’t be found in medical school curriculums, but it should be a standard required course. The majority of physicians WILL be faced with a lawsuit at some point in their careers."
