Avoid Malpractice Liability with Effective Teaching Strategies

Upon successful completion of this knowledge-based CPE course, pharmacy preceptors should be able to:
1. Discuss the malpractice liabilities that may arise when precepting pharmacy learners
2. Explain the basic principles of malpractice liability and of risk management
3. Describe strategies that can be utilized to teach pharmacy learners the value of risk management practices in the provision of pharmaceutical products and services to patients
