At MIPS we have a suite of risk management activities for all our members.
Choices include education workshops, online risk education modules, webinars, vodcast risk management essentials series, hospital employed risk seminars and student risk seminars. These events are offered at no charge for current members and most attract CPD points.
These workshops have been developed with the specific needs of our members in mind. Presented by MIPS and/or specialist risk management consultants, the aim of MIPS workshops is to help members develop skills in identifying risks and implementing risk mitigation strategies.
MIPS online risk education modules provide a convenient alternative for members who are unable to attend risk education workshops due to location or time commitments. From the comfort of home or office, members can participate in risk management activities whilst also gaining CPD (2 Category 2 QI &CPD, RACGP members only) and/or meeting the PSS risk management requirement. Online risk education modules available are:
- Health Records
- Open Disclosure
- Dealing with Difficult Patients
- Risks for International Medical Graduates
The online modules can be accessed here. You will need to “sign up” for online education using your MIPS member number as your username and creating a password (at least 6 characters containing 1 number).
