Managing Psychiatry Malpractice Risk Doesn’t Have to Be a Risky Business
When treating patients in a mental health setting, risks abound. Patient health and safety is always your top priority, but miscommunication, poor documentation, failure to properly diagnose, medication adverse effects, self-injury or death by suicide, and violence against others could lead you to being deposed or named in a psychiatry malpractice, or medical malpractice, suit.
The Legal Armor course, with world-renowned faculty presenter, Dr. Phillip Resnick, will guide you through the difficult decision making that comes with treating patients over whom you exercise limited control but are (often unrealistically) expected to guide into well-being without the occurrence of untoward events. Enjoy the confidence and freedom that comes from knowing you are taking the right steps to protect yourself and your practice.
