Course Description

This course explores collaborative relationships and risk factors associated with them. By leveraging the growing workforce afforded by advanced practice providers (APPs), the goals of improved efficiency and clinical outcomes, along with greater patient satisfaction and the ability to reach the medically underserved, will be more attainable. There are many opportunities for physicians and APPs working together as part of the care team to provide optimal care and bolster the overall clinical capability. The efficacy of a team-based approach is widely accepted by physicians, patients, and insurance payers. The encouraging news is that risks and the strategies for mitigating risk are very similar for APPs relative to their physician counterparts. Throughout the course, we will examine the top risks identified by claims history, examine the lessons learned from actual cases, and offer strategies to reduce risk.

Learning Objectives
  1. Identify general requirements for collaborative relationships
  2. Recognize risk issues and exposures identified by claims
  3. List easily implemented, practical strategies to reduce risk in today’s medical environment
