Midwives are likely to experience adverse client outcomes that sometimes will result in disciplinary action against their license or litigation. Awareness and understanding about the incidence and outcomes of litigation involving midwives is limited. In 2018, the ACNM Professional Liability Committee conducted the third national survey on midwives and liability. This presentation presents the results of the survey, now published in JMWH, and includes discussion on support strategies for midwives who experience adverse events or disciplinary action, or who are involved in litigation, and secondary trauma which may follow.
1. Attendees will know what factors increase the likelihood of midwives being named in a lawsuit.
2. Attendees will know the most common outcome of cases involving midwives.
3. Attendees will learn methods to support self and other midwives who experience adverse events or are named in litigation, including for themselves.
4. Attendees will learn risk management strategies that they can implement in clinical practice
