A Friendly Approach to Reducing Medical Malpractice Litigation
A Friendly Approach to Reducing Medical Malpractice Litigation focuses on practical and feasible solutions to the rising threat of medical malpractice litigation by establishing that psychological principles are fundamental to point-of-care physician-patient interaction. Several universities discussed in the article have recognized the benefits of incorporating bedside manner techniques into the curriculum. The article attempts to extend the logic understood by those universities to medical malpractice insurance providers as a means to effectively preempt litigation as opposed to maintaining a reactive posture, or worse, limiting the rights of patients, thereby raising their guard and weakening their tolerance for error.
