Helping Heal the Healers: The Second Victim

December 2, 2020

This activity will describe the prevalence of second victims and the impact medication errors have on healthcare providers. We will then review literature surrounding second victims and medication errors along with programs that have been established to support second victims from a department level. This will include the hierarchy of victims within a medication error, including those who undertake supporting second victims. With this, the goal is to provide attendees with a better understanding on how to support themselves and others through the process of a medication error.
