Risk Rx has had a long and distinguished run. Numerous published articles reviewed by experts in their respective fields were made available to all those served by SIP to increase their knowledge of opportunities to reduce risk of professional liability and to enhance patient safety. Although this is the last edition, Risk Rx will serve as a foundation for the next SIP publication initiative – Healthcare Professional Liability Review. We value the Risk Rx knowledge base created over the years, and all articles published by Risk Rx will remain available on our SIP website at www.flbog.sip.edu. A special thanks to Jan Rebstock who championed Risk Rx and to all Risk Rx article contributors and members of the Editorial Board.
Healthcare Professional Liability Review is coming.
These are exciting times for SIP. We are joining the realm of peer-reviewed publications with our first edition of Healthcare Professional Liability Review scheduled for February 2016. Healthcare Professional Liability Review serves as a scholarly, peer-reviewed, national and international information exchange for the analysis of contemporary professional liability challenges confronting healthcare, legal, and insurance professionals. Healthcare Professional Liability Review advances creative solutions with the objective of mitigating the adverse consequences of medical malpractice claims and litigation. It will seek articles relevant to its stated objective, with the focus on perceptive, discerning articles that positively impact the healthcare, legal, and insurance professions individually and collectively.
Healthcare Professional Liability Review articles are welcomed on an open submission basis at any time. If accepted for review and approved for publication, articles will be published in one of the two semiannual editions. All articles are submitted through the Open Journal System portal on the Healthcare Professional Liability Review website (healthcareprofessionalliabilityreview.org). The Editorial Board is composed of outstanding professionals in the fields of healthcare, law, and insurance. The members are seasoned practitioners and professionals who are devoted to the dissemination of quality information that enhances the professional liability knowledge and skill sets. We are pleased to retain some of the members of the Editorial Board who served on the Risk Rx board.
We encourage all of our Risk Rx readership to continue building their knowledge base by reading Healthcare Professional Liability Review, and we also encourage our readership to consider writing scholarly articles for publication in our new peer-reviewed journal. Specific instructions on submitting articles for consideration for publication will be broadcast to all Risk Rx readers in the near future.
