Description

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.

(NOTE: This course is required for Florida Massage licensure renewal.)
