The Risk Authority - Stanford to present webcast


Healthcare risk management consulting firm, The Risk Authority – Stanford, is set to host a panel discussion on peer support programs for clinicians. 

The discussion, which will be presented in partnership with Aon Risk Solutions, Lockton UK and MedPro Group, will also cover the effectiveness of clinician peer support programs.

The Risk Authority – Stanford will moderate the conversation with an authority in the field, Dr Jo Shapiro of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, along with Dr Bryan Bohman, physician leader of Stanford Medicine’s peer support program.

“Few situations are more stressful to clinicians than experiencing an event that has resulted in harm to the patient,” said Jeffrey Driver, chief executive officer of The Risk Authority – Stanford and chief risk officer for Stanford University Medical Center. 

“Unfortunately, clinicians seldom make use of traditional support services when these events occur. Peer support programs that reach out and provide 1:1 support are gaining attention as a way to help these clinicians when they are under this severe stress.”

The live video webcast will air on Wednesday, May 6, 2015.
