The Sullivan Group is dedicated to medical error and risk reduction in emergency medicine. Emergency Practitioners have come under intense scrutiny related to medical errors and related patient injury. The medical malpractice insurance marketplace is changing dramatically. Many practitioners are unable to obtain malpractice insurance.

We must take identifiable risk out of the practice of emergency medicine. The TSG web based training courses are focused on improved quality of care, and decreasing medical errors and risk.

Risk Management: Core Curriculum 1: Medical Error and Risk Reduction Courses
This is the most complete and detailed look into emergency medical errors and medical decision making ever undertaken. It is based upon hundreds of hours of medical and legal research. This web-based instruction is an outstanding opportunity to standardize risk education for your emergency medical practitioners.

TSG currently offers 40 courses in the Core Curriculum for both physicians and nurses. Physicians receive two Category 1 CME credits per course. The Nursing Core Curriculum provides varying amounts of Contact credit based upon the length of the course. The courses vary between one and two hours per course.

Risk Management: Core Curriculum 2: Medical Malpractice Case Review
These programs present actual medical malpractice cases and are considered an adjunct to the Core 1 programs. TSG strongly recommends that you take the Core 1 Courses prior to beginning Core 2. The courses are interactive and present actual medical records either from litigation or actions adverse to physician, allied health and nursing practitioners. Each course includes a malpractice case, a case overview, discussion relating the particular high-risk area, documentation guidelines, and risk management recommendations. The courses provide two hours of CME credit.
