Whose job is it to teach risk management principles to pharmacy learners? Sure – they have to take a law course as part of their curricular requirements, but how much does that mean to them until they are in real life situations as part of their IPPEs, APPEs, or residency? As preceptors, it’s important that we not only recognize and manage the legal risks of welcoming pharmacy learners within our pharmacy practice but also that we are prepared to teach practical concepts such as risk management in addition to developing their clinical skills. Listen to this episode where we talk with David Brushwood, a well-known expert, and educator in the practical and professional aspects of risk management and pharmacy law.
