The worlds of Risk Management and Quality Management and how they relate to each other and to us as those responsible for oversight and execution of both in our Health Center Oral Health Programs is not always understood with clarity. This session will define for us the essential elements of both as they relate to our oversight and responsibility. Then, it will take a deeper dive into how the relationships between Risk Management, Continuous Quality Improvement, Quality Assurance, Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Malpractice Insurance and other regulatory elements related to FQHC governance all fit together. We will visit each element in relation to policy for each and demonstrate how knowing the ways in which they do relate actually gives us a better idea of our responsibility thus enabling us to execute each of them accurately and with more confidence.
