Since our inception back in 2002, the MITSS mission has been to “Support Healing and Restore Hope” to patients, families, and clinicians who have been impacted by medical errors and adverse medical events. MITSS has always recognized that when things go wrong in healthcare, the clinician (doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or other healthcare providers) can be dealt an equally devastating emotional blow. As we know, these events can be very difficult to talk about, and there is little out there in the way of support services.
Our goal for the MITSS Clinicians’ Blog is to provide a forum for healthcare providers to speak openly about the emotional impact of adverse events as well as exchange useful information and resources with your colleagues. We hope that you will be willing to share your experiences as we look toward fostering a community of support among medical caregivers.
With that said, though, we admit to a sense of uncertainty about where this blog is going to take us. Please join us in a lively and respectful discussion as we create a space to have this kind of dialogue!
With warm regards,
