1.00 BOC Approved Clinical Home Study EBP CEU's
COST: $ 29.99 - EXPIRATION DATE: 2019-12-31
Although common legal terms and emergency preparedness are aspects of the professional preparation of clinicians, failure to comprehend administrative aspects of clinical practice is a common concern for those transitioning to practice. The current climate in traditional sports settings is seemingly fraught with risk and to exacerbate that problem, Athletic Trainers, more often than not, are facing litigation because a lack of understanding of their actions (or inactions). As Athletic Training looks to be a respected health care profession, clinicians must be deliberate and intentional in mitigating risks in their clinical practice.
At the core of Athletic Training, is the protection of the physically active however, knowledge gaps often expose clinicians to unforeseen legal action. In this presentation, participants will learn about common legal errors and the means to mitigate risk in the workplace. We will encourage participants to become more familiar with their respective state practice acts and standards of clinical practice, establish good relationships with patients, acquisition of clear employment contracts that delineate roles and responsibilities, acquisition of written consent, and documentation of actions, delegation of responsibilities, communication, education, and preparation.
1. Recall common legal terms
2. Apply management strategies to decrease medical errors
3. Mitigate risks for his/her own practice and those he/she supervises
4. Prepare and train for emergencies
