Risk Management JUA Resources:
Victoria Grace of QMA Risk Management LLC has assembled a broad set of information that will help midwives address topics such as HIPAA, cord blood law, and writing Policy, Procedure & Practice Guideline manuals, etc. You can find it under the Risk Management section of the JUA website, or you can directly access it here.
If you're scheduled for practice liability review this year, you will find these resources invaluable in getting prepped for the review. Liz Chalmers from the JUA highly encourages perusing all the sections before submitting any material to Victoria for review.
Even if you're not scheduled for review this year, you can take a moment to check out the resources and compare to the documentation you are currently using.
