FRM F037 - Decreasing Iatrogenic Problems in Your Practice

Open admission to eligible categories, no tuition or ticket


Date: Saturday, March 02

CME Credits: 2.00

Location: Room D233/234

Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Director: Eliot N. Mostow, MD, FAAD


  • Stephen E. Helms, MD, FAAD

Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify examples of iatrogenic problems in a medical dermatology clinic including diagnostic errors
  • Consider “best practice” data, where available, to prevent iatrogenic problems
  • Develop systems within the practice to reduce iatrogenic problems

Experts agree that physicians and their practices make errors in a variety of circumstances, some more serious than others. This is the basis of the gap that we plan to reduce/close by using lecture, discussion, and interaction from the participants to identify at least one thing that can be done to prevent and reduce errors in your practice. The focus is to be practical with the intent of improving efficiency and effectiveness, ultimately improving patient outcomes. We cover cognitive and technical errors with an ultimate focus on methods to reduce both. We encourage interaction.
