This course has been specifically designed to be interesting and provide usable information - directly related to Oriental Medical practice. It is laid out in a very practical way and provides a step by step approach. It differs from most courses in this topic in that its focus is true life scenarios - of things that are actually occurring around the country - how we can learn from them, and easy things to do to prevent them. Most are easily prevented and dozens of simple and practical tips are provided in the course.
Learning from how they happened can make life much easier, but can also lower the likelihood of future, issues as well as practice related claims.
- To clarify and compare the most important terms: Medical Errors, Negligence, Safety, Risk, Risk Management, Lawsuits
- To know the types of actual injury or harm that is happening in the practice across the country, to learn from them, to apply this to our own practices and patient visits
- To have a list of methods and practices that attendees can use to implement and make their practices safer and lower the likelihood of injury having a practice related suit filed against them
