Would You Know How to Respond to an Adverse Outcome?
Posted on: 9/13/2017

ISMS partnered with ISMIE Mutual to develop the medical legal guideline, Responding to Unanticipated Outcomes. This comprehensive resource includes guiding principles, information on discussing the outcome with the patient, and a checklist of important steps to take.

While this booklet does not constitute formal legal advice, it can be an invaluable resource for physicians working through the process.

If you have questions, please contact the ISMS Legal Department at 800-782-4767 or send an email.
