Physician wellness: The medical and legal shift towards a culture of safety

The Chicago Medical Society has developed an online educational activity titled, "Physician wellness: The medical and legal shift towards a culture of safety."

Physicians are facing greater burdens, pressures and stressors such as malpractice suits, decreased respect from the public, financial concerns, managing more patients, and the need to adapt to technological advances. These burdens take a tremendous toll on a physician’s well-being which can lead to an increased risk of psychiatric disorders, addiction, medical illness and stress-related conditions that can cause disruptions in the work place. This session will address the clinical and legal aspects, including case studies that affect today’s challenging healthcare climate. It will equip physicians with the tools needed to navigate potential legal issues as well as address the shift towards a culture of safety and a physician’s overall well-being.
