Top Risk Issues for Nurse Practitioners 
Nurse Practitioners have been providing care to patients and enhancing quality of and access to care for nearly fifty years. Currently, there are more than 290,000 Nurse Practitioners licensed to practice in the US and the numbers continue to grow. Aging baby boomers and the prevalence of chronic disease are fueling this increase in the number of nurse practitioners. Along with this increase comes exposure to potential risk and liability similar to that of physicians and other healthcare providers. This presentation will review areas of clinical practice posing high liability risk potential and recommend methods to manage those risks.

This presentation relates generally to nurse practitioners and the top risk issues. It is not directed to any particular specialty nor does it specifically address any proposed, pending, or enacted bills in the 2021 legislative session of any state.

Cybersecurity & Your Medical Practice 
Cybersecurity has taken on a life of its own, especially in healthcare! Medical practice financial loss from breaches can be massive, affecting patient care and satisfaction. Health information is more valuable for criminal sales than social security numbers and ten times more valuable than credit card information. In an era of consumerism, where patient-centered care hinges on electronic data access, exchange and sharing of healthcare information, medical practices are vulnerable to cyberattacks. This presentation will address the current risks of medical information loss including methods of cyberattacks and insider cyber threats. There will be discussion of prevention methods such as training guidance, methods of response to cyber incidents and cybersecurity best practices designed to prevent losses and potential claims.

Liability Trends for Physician Assistants 
Working alongside physicians and other healthcare providers, Physician Assistants are an increasingly integral part of multidisciplinary teams providing care to patients in many specialties.

It is vital for physician assistants to maintain a current understanding of these risks and minimize the risks in everyday practice. This presentation will focus on the leading risk issues most relevant to the practice of physician assistants and offer strategies to decrease liability.
