C92 - What Keeps You Up at Night? Addressing Mistakes and Injuries, In-n-Out-Patient Transition, and Building a Team to Support You

Event Time: Monday April 23, 2018 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Practice, Policy, and Ethics
Director(s): Justin Martello MD
Description: We often take it for granted that when a patient leaves your office, he/she will return in pristine order at their next visit - labs will be done, testing will be performed, medications will be administered properly. "The best laid plans…" never accounts for human error, despite all our best efforts to explain to the patient, in detail, the role and responsibility they have in their health care between visits. This course will act as a helpful guide on dealing with the unknown elements your patients are at risk for between office visits (from hospitalizations to medical error, including your own, to what plays a role in non-adherence) leading to a sounder sleep at night, knowing your patient is in the hands of a good health care team with a fool-proof plan.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand how to address medical mistakes that may or may not lead to harm and the ethical implications involved; understand how to anticipate the problems that may arise between office visits and common patient questions/concerns/confusion/misperceptions; understand the best ways to facilitate between a patient's hospitalization and transition between the in-patient and out-patient world; and understand how to form a support team to help in the care of your patient.
