Analyzing decades of medical malpractice claim data has led the MI faculty to narrow our focus to pinpoint the most important roots of patient safety issues across a host of medical specialties. When we boil down our collection of risk management education topics, these key concepts most keenly respond to the roots of patient safety issues: 

Risk Management Concept: Cognition - Icon of human head with cog for brain

Cognition

Error in the mental action or process of learning can lead to adverse events stemming from inaccurate or incomplete thinking, perceiving, experiencing, recognizing, remembering and judging. Courses marked with this designation indicate that information presented within that specific education activity will illuminate actionable ways to improve analysis and synthesis of information, diagnosis and clinical decision making. 


Risk Management Concept: Communication - Icon of speech bubbles

Communication

Misunderstandings can lead to adverse events arising from errors in written, verbal and non-verbal information exchange. Courses marked with this designation indicate that concepts presented within that specific education activity will feature actionable ways to improve mutual understanding between healthcare providers and/or between medical professionals and their patients. 


Risk Management Concept: Performance - Icon of spedometer

Performance

Reactive behavior resulting in inaccuracy, incompletion, expensive and untimely tasks can lead to adverse events arising from poor execution of an action and/or fulfillment of a request. Courses marked with this designation indicate that the specific education activity will present realistic ways to apply learning, implement changes in a medical practice, improve competencies, critically assess performance, and utilize and incorporate evidence-based best practices. 


Risk Management Concept: Professionalism - Icon of people

Professionalism

Breach of competency standards and ethical values can result in adverse events stemming from a misunderstanding of professional expectations. Courses marked with this designation indicate that the education activity will clarify professional expectations in an effort to improve advocacy and participation, provider wellness, ethical decisions, cultural competence, professional organization participation, and adherence to patient care guidelines. 


Risk Management Concept: System - Icon of Cogs

System

System errors in medicine primarily consist of interrelated and interdependent components that habitually influence one another, and can often result in adverse consequences. Courses marked with this designation indicate that the education activity will present ways to address legal and regulatory issues, coordination of care and teamwork, electronic health record IT issues, policies and procedures, cost and risk benefits, and quality improvement activities.
