Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant Study and Risk Strategies
When: Wednesday, June 10, 2020Time: 11:30am-1:00pmWhere: TBD
ABOUT THE SESSION: Employment trends indicate an increasing number of Advanced Practice Professionals (APP) in healthcare settings. However, due to the sheer volume – not professional capabilities – of APPS in a physician’s office, there is an anticipated increase in vulnerability to patient injury and liability lawsuits.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Amy McLain, BSN, RN has more than 20 years of experience in nursing, quality improvement, and healthcare risk management. She began her career as a clinical nurse and has worked in the surgical, telemetry, home health, and pediatrics fields. Ms. McLain currently serves as CAP’s Assistant Vice President of the Risk Management and Patient Safety department. In addition to supporting the department’s Vice President, Ann Whitehead, she leads a team of senior risk managers who assist member physicians to proactively minimize professional liability risk and improve patient safety through educational presentations, CAP publications, and medical office visits to assess risk and provide risk management support. Ms. McLain is a contributing author for CAPsules, Risk E-Notes, and has published several closed claims focused reviews on topics, such as Medical Assistant Liability, Advance Practice Professionals, and Pediatrics. Furthermore, she is a key asset in the CAP Cares program, helping members manage adverse events when they arise.
