Take Aim at Risk, CAP's flagship risk management course, was developed by CAP's risk management experts to help physicians prevent patient injury and reduce malpractice claims. It is comprised of seven modules focusing on critical risk management topics and offers 2.5 hours of CME credit. The program explores the main factors that lead to medical errors, such as communication breakdowns and medication mismanagement. In addition to guidance on longstanding malpractice topics such as apologies, informed consent, and documentation, Take Aim at Risk's revised content now addresses e-prescribing guidelines, updated nurse practitioner (NP) and physician assistant (PA) supervision requirements, new specifications related to email, texting, and telehealth, and much more.
