Patient, Medical, and Legal Perspectives of Unsafe Care Webinar
October 29 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am PDT
Around the World
Often, patients, clinicians, and legal experts are not on the same page when patient harm occurs. This lack of a coordinated effort toward resolution can compromise healing and improvement for all groups involved. While we have a good understanding of what’s not working well, such as a culture of silence after an error occurs, the panelists will discuss actionable, interdisciplinary solutions to improve these well known gaps.
