Learn why medical errors contribute to high health-care costs and why it's so important to design your work to increase safety for your clients and yourself.
This course describes the problem of injury, including death, from errors in the U.S. health care system. It lays out a comprehensive strategy for addressing these problems to which we are all vulnerable. You will also discover reasons to simplify key work processes and avoid over-reliance on memory and vigilance.
Preventing Medical Errors was like all the other requirements that we take every two years. Nothing new...

The course was very clear. The information is logical and sometimes shocking to realize how many medical errors can happen! Very helpful - thank you.
Content was enlightening. Very good presentation. I can hopefully use some of this information to further encourage my friends and clients to advocate for themselves with their medical providers. I often tell them to listen to their bodies and to what they feel in their gut is right.
