    Two (2) of the forty (40) hours must relate to prevention of medical errors, including a study of root-cause analysis, error reduction and prevention, and patient safety.

    The Board of School Psychology does not allow continuing education providers approved by another Board within MQA to offer Medical Errors courses as complementary. The only exception is when the course is also approved for Medical Errors for Psychology. We do have a Medical Errors course approved for Psychology.
