Product Description

Dramatically Lower Your Risk of Medical Malpractice Through Precise Communication with Patients and other Professionals 

 Medical practice is a nightmare for physicians, medical practices and hospitals. Time is lost and reputations are damaged. Of course, there is a significant financial impact.

Excellent patient relationships directly lower the risk of malpractice.  If you have a great relationship and an unexpected outcome occurs, the risk of litigation is minimized. However, if you have a poor relationship combined with an unexpected outcome, that is setting the stage for a malpractice claim. 

In this high-content session with Edward Leigh, you’ll learn proven techniques to connect with patients to lower your risk of malpractice. This conference also covers professionals communicating effectively with each other to reduce errors.

People don't sue because they are greedy; they sue because they are angry. 

Create excellent relationships: Learn proven strategies to partner with patients and not simply give orders.  The session also reviews helpful ways to encourage patients to be active participants in their care. The more involved they are, the less likely errors will occur that you could be held responsible.

Take a look at what’s covered:

  • Decrease your risk of malpractice by increasing the quality of your patient relationships! Learn the tools to build strong bonds with patients.  These little-known tips produce big results
  • The characteristics of professionals who have been sued multiple times versus those who have never been sued. Striking differences
  • Helping patients become their own advocates to lower the risk of errors. An informed patient is your best patient
  • Dramatically improving communication between professionals to avoid errors.  For example, poor handoffs increase the risk of mistakes
  • How a simple two-page form can lower your risk of malpractice and improve the lives of your patients. This two-page form alone is reason enough for attending this conference
