Program Description, Objectives, and Audience

Program Description

The prospect of a medical professional liability (MPL) claim can elicit fear and anxiety for many healthcare providers. In this year’s Loss Prevention program, KAMMCO will provide a detailed and educational explanation of the processes involved in professional liability claims and litigation to assist providers and healthcare staff in alleviating their fears and facilitating constructive analysis and discussion. This education will also assist members in determining what actions or events may trigger an MPL claim and what communication and patient safety measures can help reduce risks. The overall goal is to give providers and staff accurate information to reduce fear of the unknown and empower them to apply this information to reduce risks of adverse patient experiences and limit their exposure to MPL claims.


Following participation in this program, the learner will be prepared to:

1. Identify the process of healthcare professional liability claims and litigation and recognize how those who evaluate claims view common patient care scenarios.

2. Describe the implementation of preventative actions and tools available to protect healthcare providers from potential liability.

3. Discuss how the KAMMCO Claims team and peer support work to help providers receive individualized emotional and legal support during a lawsuit to maintain their health and well-being when claims occur.

4. Evaluate each person’s role in the professional liability claim and how that role may affect the outcome of the claim.

Program Audience

This program is designed for the healthcare team, including physicians, clinic managers, hospital and facility administrators, risk managers, nurses, long-term care providers, and healthcare professionals.
