Prevention of Medical Errors Course
The Opioid Epidemic and pervasiveness of drug use has resulted in increased risk in our chiropractic patients. It is imperative that chiropractors are aware of their patients’ pharmaceutical side effects and the ramifications of their medical history. Prescription, over-the counter and recreational drug use will be discussed. The goal of the course is to provide the chiropractor and their staff with an overview of the problem of medical errors, factors contributing to the occurrence of these errors, and steps that can be taken to reduce medical errors in key care settings.
- Understand the adverse occurrences from medical errors
- Understand the common errors and causes of litigation in the chiropractic office
- Learn what to do in order to prevent medical errors from occurring in the chiropractic practice
