Using a case study, this session will help you explore the risks in your practice setting and how to mitigate them. After introduction of the case facts, we will discuss the legal claims, alleged medical errors, and system failures. Come prepared to debate which elements of the case created the most risk and which could have been avoided with better checks and balances. We conclude with a discussion of best practices based on participant experiences.
