New Educational Opportunities for ISMIE Policyholders

person working on coursesISMIE is committed to providing policyholders with the tools you need to stay at the top of your game. That’s why we’ve recently made available on-demand coursework on some of the hottest topics in medicine, including two of the most popular sessions from the 2018 ISMIE Risk Management Symposium:

  • Physicians at Work: Reigniting Purpose & Mastery – Diagnosis is at the heart of clinical practice. Physicians excel at this challenging task, but emerging studies on the incidence of diagnostic error suggest room for improvement. In this program, Gurpreet Dhaliwal, MD, uses case discussions to outline the way clinicians diagnose and how to improve the diagnostic process through individual- and team-based approaches.

  • Deprescribing: The Who, What, When, Why, and How In the United States, 40% of people 65 and older take at least five regular medications. While sometimes justifiable, polypharmacy exposes older adults to numerous risks, and a systematic process of deprescribing may be needed to help evaluate and prioritize medications. In this program, Holly Holmes, MD, MS, outlines that process, focuses on the patients and situations where deprescribing might be helpful, and identifies several helpful tools for clinicians.
