Overview / Abstract:

Preventing Medical Errors & Improving Patient Safety is a 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that meets the medical error renewal requirement for Florida Occupational Therapists (OTs).

This course addresses the impact of medical errors on today’s healthcare with a focus on root cause analysis, error reduction and prevention, and patient safety. It satisfies the requirements of the Florida State Legislature mandating a two-hour course relating to the prevention of medical errors as part of the licensure and renewal process for health professionals. Included are descriptions and examples of medical errors in various healthcare professions. The course highlights the importance of critical thinking in assessment and planning and discusses health literacy, cultural competence, links between ethics and medical errors, centrality of evidence-based practice, distinguishing science from pseudoscience and improving communication skills. Also included are printable handouts with tips and strategies for error prevention, a glossary, and online resources.
