Free Offer: Psychiatric Risk Management Materials

When we at The Psychiatrists’ Program packed our bags for the American Psychiatric Association’s Annual Meeting in Hawaii, we brought our usual arsenal of convention personnel and materials. Of course we brought our most important assets, the PRMS staffers: our team of expert risk managers, underwriters and claims examiners ready to talk with psychiatrists and answer their questions. We brought our complimentary materials as well: the stacks of risk management articles and tips we share with psychiatrists seeking information on increasing their patient safety and reducing liability risk.

This year we combined our booth giveaways with a little, unscientific experiment: If a psychiatrist could only choose four of our risk management materials, which would they choose? In order to keep our finger on the pulse of practicing psychiatrists, we kept track of which materials were selected. Which tips were the most popular? What might this say about the environment of working psychiatrists today?

The results were interesting, pointing both to emerging liability trends and mainstay risk concerns. So what were the results of our experiment to gauge the most popular risk management materials at the 2011 APA Annual Meeting? Survey says…

– Most Requested: Electronic Health Records: An Overview of the Risks and Risk Management Advice
