First Healthcare Compliance hosts David M. Sommers, MD, JD, LLM, Medical Director and Chief Compliance Officer at Medsome LLC, for an interactive discussion on “The Second Victim Conundrum: Recognition, Intervention, and Protection of Peer Support.”

This webinar reviews the literature dealing with “second victims,” who are clinicians involved in a patient safety incident often as a result of medical errors. New programs providing care for these caregivers have developed and the legal protections of these efforts are discussed.

Attendees will learn the impact errors have on clinicians, review literature involving medical errors and the new support programs that have developed to aid these caregivers, and discuss of the legal protections for these support programs and statements made by second victims in addressing the patient safety event.

Objectives:
1. Identification of the impact errors have on clinicians.
2. Review of the literature involving medical errors and the new support programs that have developed to aid these caregivers.
3. Discussion of the legal protections for these support programs and statements made by second victims in addressing the patient safety event.
