Preventing Medical Errors in Speech-Language Pathology

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This course addresses the impact of medical errors on today’s health care with a focus on root cause analysis, error reduction and prevention, and patient safety. Multiple scenarios of real and potential errors in the practice of speech-language pathology and audiology across the continuum of practice are included, along with recommended strategies for preventing them. Evidence shows that the most effective error prevention occurs when a partnership exists among care facilities, health care professionals, and the patients they treat. * This course satisfies the medical errors requirement for license renewal of Florida SLPs.
