Validate Your Malpractice Risk: Co-sponsored by TDCF and HSRI:

The Doctors Company Foundation and HSRI, a subsidiary of CRICO Strategies, are teaming up to demonstrate how you and your colleagues can transform your assumptions about medical errors and medical malpractice into credible evidence and practical remedies. Learn what individual or systemic trouble spots to tackle, and how to reduce the likelihood of preventable patient injuries, and the professional and legal consequences of such events.


Working with TDC and national malpractice claim data, you'll learn how to apply a proven methodology for validating and addressing the key risks underlying medical malpractice claims in your day-to-day practice. Physicians from all specialties and practice settings will gain important knowledge about how to narrow their attention to the issues that truly put them — and their patients in harm's way.


Education Objectives:

Validate Your Malpractice Risk attendees will be able to identify and incorporate:

  • actionable malpractice data to underscore patient safety vulnerabilities;

  • the specific cognitive and systems pitfalls that need to be addressed in order to reduce preventable harm to patients and minimize their risk of being sued; and

  • strategies for implementing and sustaining effective long-term patient safety improvement initiatives.

This program is offered free of charge
