► Dealing with errors and the plight of perfectionism

Reading time:

This webinar will equip you with best practices to reduce the likelihood of medical errors and practical strategies to implement in your practice.  

A medical error's emotional toll can include guilt, shame, anxiety, fear, and in extreme cases, depression. The pervasive culture among healthcare professionals to strive for perfection and the burden of blame in medicine are significant contributing factors to these harmful effects. In the face of adverse patient outcomes, a sense of isolation and a lack of peer and organisational support can also be responsible and impact wellbeing, burnout, and decreased job satisfaction.

Learning outcomes

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to: 

  • •Discuss the leading causes of medical errors.
    •Identify effective strategies to minimise the risk of cognitive and non-cognitive errors that prevent optimal care.
    •Discuss practical strategies to minimise your medico-legal risk.
