Program Summary

Adverse drug reactions occur nearly every day and despite their dangers, they are not always obvious or reported. The scenario of a patient starting a new drug and developing well-known side effects is a very cut and dried scenario. Such a scenario is the most straightforward; however, it is not the one we hear about most often. There are some scenarios to be aware of that should send up a red flag that harm may have been done to a patient due to a medication. For attorneys, there are several questions to explore and medical resources to browse when reviewing the details of a possible medication-related case. Attorneys can do their own investigation before considering a consult with a medical expert.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Describe two types of medication errors
  • List three “red flags” indicating that there may have been an adverse drug reaction
  • Identify two types of patients at higher risk for medication harm
  • State one practical resource for information on medications
