This "Law for Doctors" video-based risk management CME course covers everything medical practitioners need to know about medical risk management, the litigation process, and how to best protect themselves against patient lawsuits.  
These are things every medical practitioner should know NOW!

This risk management CME course is intended for physicians, nurses, and other medical practitioners, the well-being of their practice, and their healthcare institutions. This "law for doctors" online CME course includes clinical and legal pearls that insurance companies and lawyers don’t always volunteer. The tools provided 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.

"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 CME 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. As a physician and attorney it has been a career goal of mine to educate and support doctors in reducing their liability risk. I want to help you understand the process before becoming a victim to the tragic consequences of malpractice."

"This is an excellent risk management CME course and I'm glad I took it.  I haven't been faced with a lawsuit yet, but I feel much more informed and aware.  Learning about the process, the gotchas, and all the opposing tactics Dr. Water's worked through, I was definitely out of my league!  This really should be a required part of formative medical education."
