We provide some information on coping with adverse events, complaints and lawsuits. A Canadian psychiatrist helped us compile this advice.
Although designed for trainees and practicing physicians, the website is open access to the public. At entry for the first time there is a question that asks you to identify the nature of your practice.
In addition, I was discussing coping with adverse events with a colleague, and he mentioned that he advises physicians to keep a file of thank-you letters, cards and emails they have received from grateful patients. When something does go wrong in patient care, as it eventually will, then they can consult the file and perhaps get a better perspective on their practice.
We also have a section on this website that is for faculty to help teach the core content. It contains a trigger video called "Coping with a poor clinical outcome". See http://www.cmpa-acpm.ca/cmpapd04/docs/ela/goodpracticesguide/pages/adverse_events/adverse_events-faculty-e.html
Midway down the page.
These materials are used in training in many Canadian medical schools. All of these materials can be used for non-commercial purposes and simply we would ask for acknowledgement of the CMPA.
Hope this helps,

Subject: [IMPROVEDX] Qualitative studies of second victims
I am currently looking at the experience of clinicians involved in medical error (not just diagnostic errors), often termed the "second victim". I have conducted a number of literature searches to support this, but given the knowledge, expertise and experience of the members of this listserv I was wondering if the members of this list may be able to suggest any additional articles they may be aware of or have themselves published/ contributed to.
Articles I am interested in are those which provide qualitative accounts of the impact of being a second victim. If anyone is able to help with this please feel free to email me with any details.
Thank you in advance, and if you have any questions or clarifications, please feel free to get in touch.
