An appraisal of risks and risk mitigating tools as found in clinical base medical as well as legal text are provided so that the podiatric physician may develop mitigating tools to patient harm when conduct duties centered on infection control, providing inform consent, surgical time out procedures and opioid ordering and prescribing. The goal of this hour-long presentation is to fulfill the one-hour Risk Management CPME requirement for podiatric physicians licensed in the state of Florida."
