Webinar Information:

This webinar has ended.


Learn about malpractice vulnerabilities in nursing and discuss strategies to mitigate risk and improve patient safety. Nurses are dedicated to providing the highest level of care to their patients. However, despite this commitment, errors may still occur. Breakdowns in communication, failure to escalate concern, and failure to rescue patients are all areas where nurses may be vulnerable to risk.



Join our expert faculty for this one hour live webinar to hear what data reveals about nursing and malpractice. At the webinar’s conclusion, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss malpractice risks specific to nursing
  • Review nursing malpractice data relative to communication, escalation of concern and failure to rescue
  • Describe strategies to mitigate risk including structured communication and team training
