Diagnostic error is one of the primary causes of malpractice claims but until recently, it flew under the patient safety radar. The National Academy of Medicine (NAM), formerly known as the Institute of Medicine, released a report on this issue. This webinar will review what is known now about diagnostic error, and will present improvement strategies advanced practice providers can use in their own practice, involving both system and cognitive factors.

With the prevalence of the electronic health record (EHR), the process of prescribing medication has changed in many ways. Some of the changes have been very beneficial, but others have increased risks. The use of drop-down menus requires the prescriber to be precise in choosing the correct medication and dose. Medical malpractice claims have also revealed situations involving bypassing system alerts, look-alike/sound-alike drugs, prescribing in handoffs of care, and office prescribing practices. These situations and others have been implicated in adverse events related to EHR medication prescribing.
