MLMIC reminds policyholders about “Effective Use and Supervision of Advanced Practice Providers (APPs),” a complimentary webinar to be offered by HANYS and MLMIC on Thursday, March 28, from noon to 1 p.m.
Interested participants can register online here.
During the upcoming MLMIC-HANYS webinar, participants will learn how to:
- differentiate the scope of practice for NPs vs. PAs;
- interpret MLMIC claims data for APPs;
- evaluate the common allegations asserted in medical malpractice cases that include APPs; and
- apply risk management principles and best practices to mitigate the risks of supervising these professionals.
As the demand for healthcare outpaces physician availability, patient care is increasingly provided by APPs in a wide variety of healthcare settings. This growth has led to litigation associated with their care, including allegations related to the supervision of these providers by physicians and healthcare organizations.
MLMIC encourages insureds to attend the webinar offered in partnership with HANYS to stay current with best practices on use and supervision of APPs.
