Helping Clinicians Navigate Uncertainty Following Harm Events
Clinicians under the stress of litigation may see fewer patients, disrupt care team cohesion or leave the practice—actions that lower productivity, raise costs and detract from team and patient satisfaction. Constellation’s Clinician Peer Support Program (CPSP) can help clinicians facing a harm event, claim or lawsuit by connecting them with a peer who will listen to their concerns and help them navigate the process. This webinar will discuss Constellation’s CPSP and explore best practices for establishing a clinician peer support program within your organization.
- Understand how clinician peer support programs can provide support to clinicians and care team members after a harm event when they may be facing a claim or lawsuit.
- Discuss how early reporting plays a critical role in identifying the need for clinician peer support and providing resources in a timely fashion.
- Identify methods to implement a clinician peer support program within your organization.
