Hello and happy (almost) autumn!
While all of us at PRMS are enjoying the last few days of summer, we are looking forward to a busy autumn – and all of its beautiful colors and cool temperatures!
To spread awareness about National Physician Suicide Awareness Day on September 17, our Risk Managers wrote this article, which addresses one of the many causes of physician suicides – stress related to litigation. WHO’s World Patient Safety Day, also on September 17, focuses on the theme of medication this year, so we created a new article, Top 10 Medication Safety Tips, to complement the topic. Both new articles are attached to this email, and we hope your members find them of interest along with the below September Fact vs. Fiction resource.
In honor of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month this September, PRMS is pleased to donate to and highlight two organizations in support of this cause – the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Give an Hour – in one of our latest blog articles here.
Have a beautiful and healthy autumn season!
