Second victims are healthcare providers who are involved in an unanticipated adverse patient event, medical error, and/or a patient-related injury and become victimized in the sense that the provider is traumatized by the event. Involvement in medical/surgical errors can have a lasting impact on healthcare providers, including lack of concentration, burnout, depression, poor memory, decreased clinical confidence, and impaired work performance.

At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Define Second Victim Syndrome
