Medical Errors for the Wise Clinician

CEUs 2

This course will look at errors made in the medical field, with special sections for Nutritionists, Dietitians, Midwives and Physical Therapists, including videos, personal stories, fact sheets, and lists of do’s and don’ts.

The statistics are absolutely staggering. The number of people killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars pales in comparison to the number of people killed by preventable medical errors in this country every year. Don’t let a single one of your patients become a statistic. Boards governing healthcare providers throughout the nation deserve credit in bringing this shocking information out of the shadows by requiring healthcare providers to be educated, aware and prepared.

The information in this course will put you in a position to save lives.

One Hour Laws and Rules Review for Midwives

CEUs 1

In this course, we will translate Florida Law into plain English, making it EASY for you to understand the legal requirements of your profession.

We tackle the Midwifery Practice Act section by section, review the relevant portions of the Administrative Rule 64B24, and touch on Chapter 456, which contains the violations and penalties you MUST be aware of to protect your license and your patients.

Throughout this review, we try to speak in layperson’s terms (instead of legalese) and attempt to answer common questions you may have about the laws and rules.

The valuable information was truly my favorite part, however, I thought the YouTube videos were an interesting component. It was helpful to have a personal story included and, overall, the presenters’ past professional experiences.”  ~Page Thanasiu, LMHC, Volusia Co, FL
