Advances in psychopharmacology have provided therapeutic options that were unavailable just a short time ago, leading to an increase in the use of psychotropic medication in all age groups. Unfortunately, as has historically been the case, these advances have been followed by an increase in medical malpractice lawsuits. In addition, due to increased media attention and the implementation of new laws and regulations, the risks associated with prescribing controlled substances have changed. In this program, we will look at ways in which psychiatrists can manage these new risks and limit malpractice liability exposure.
