This course is designed to give a brief overview of medical errors and how they affect massage therapists.
In this course we will cover the scope of problems regarding medical errors. The course will introduce the types of medical errors that commonly occur including medication errors, surgical errors, diagnostic errors and system failures. Recommendations for limiting or possibly eliminating these types of errors are also included.
Today many organizations where medical errors can occur try to identify problems and form solutions using a system called Root Cause Analysis (RCA). This course will address the terms associated with RCA as well as explain its process. Criticisms of this system of error recognition and solutions will also be discussed.
Finally, we will look at how this recent attention to medical errors affects us as massage therapists. Massage therapists must determine the types of errors that may take place in their own practice and learn ways to address the errors in order to stop them from occurring in the future.
This course benefits all practicing massage therapists as healthcare providers. It is intended to help massage therapists understand the importance of medical errors, as healthcare providers to the public.

The reason I chose the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies was the ability to earn my CE online without driving to a specific location and spending extra money for gas/hotels/airfares. This course exceeded my expectations. Medical Errors material was immediately available online for me to read, and I could take the test on the same day as well. Everything was very easy and convenient. As far as my other CE, I will use the Institute for Integrative Healthcare for all of them. In overall, taking my CE online made my life so much easier!

This is my first online CEU course and I am beyond impressed. I really enjoyed the fact that the material was direct yes was written in a way that was not boring. I learned quite a bit in a very short period of time. I do think this should be a required course for all massage therapists especially as we become more accepted in the medical community. Great job!!

Really good information! Many things I wasn't aware of. For instance about percentage of Attorney's fees for medical malpractice premiums. Also, Doctor's premiums. Crazy!!!
