Decreasing Medical and Treatment Errors in Behavioral Health

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Behavioral health professionals include multiple disciplines, which are all responsible for the safety of the clients they care for. Even though each discipline has its own set of ethics to guide practice, they are generally similar in terms of the importance of avoiding harm to the client. 

Client safety requires careful planning and consistent vigilance. Any behavioral health professional can jeopardize client safety by committing a medical or a treatment error. While it is unrealistic to think that you can prevent all errors, there are steps you can take to reduce their occurrences.

The goal of this course is to provide education to entry-level professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, alcohol and drug counselors, psychologists, nurses, and social workers working in the health and human services field about types, prevalence, causes, and consequences of medical and treatment errors in the behavioral health setting, as well as how to address them and reduce risk of future errors.
