Risk Management Manual

This comprehensive guide on various risk management topics provides NSDP members with a wealth of content and resources designed to identify and inform dentists on risks associated with dentistry.

Dentists can use it to reduce their potential loss exposures relative to malpractice or licensing claims.  

The Manual begins with an analysis of dental malpractice and licensing complaint claim data.
It then provides detailed information and recommendations on the following subjects:  

•    Effective Patient Communication
•    Pre-treatment Issues
•    Clinical Treatment 
•    Managing Adverse Events
•    Record Keeping & Documentation
•    Patient Management
•    Legal Concept

In the back of the Manual are five claim scenarios taken from CNA’s files that help to illustrate the above topics.  Also included is an extensive Bibliography containing links to additional resources for further study.
