This educational session will bring together clinicians for the presentation and discussion of clinical cases with unexpected or unintended outcomes. Real patient cases will be presented followed by a discussion period after each case. The discussion will consist of discussion of how the unexpected outcome occurred, how it was addressed, and how it could be prevented in the future. Rationale for these decisions will be supported by available evidence. An overview of the benefits of morbidity and mortality presentations will be given, along with strategies to implement these within one’s own practice or region. The content of this course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
Editor's Note: Regarding Pennsylvania credits, this course is approved by the PA State Board of Physical Therapy for 2 hours of general CE credit from 4/27/2017-12/31/2018.
