Prevention of Medical Errors (2 hours) - (You can purchase this class directly through the store.)
This important class focuses on the problem of medical mistakes in the field of massage therapy. We cover potential issues we could face as massage therapists including equipment failure, negligent treatment, and the improper use of lubricants, oils, and stones. In addition, there are many times as a massage therapist that you are privy to a potential error with a client or family member. Knowing how to interface with other healthcare providers and being a medical advocate are highlighted in the learning module.
