COPIC Releases 2017 Annual Report

Date of Publication June 2, 2018

Each year, COPIC releases an annual report to highlight accomplishments, keep stakeholders informed, and recognize the support they receive from their partners. The recently published 2017 Annual Report provides insight into COPIC's strategic partnership with the Iowa Medical Society (IMS) and the work that both organizations have put forth in strengthening physician-patient relationships. In particular, COPIC's partnership has brought expertise in helping utilize Candor, the state legislation that supports open discussions between physicians and patients after unanticipated outcomes in medical procedures. Additionally, the 2017 Annual Report details the success of the 3R's communication and resolution program recently highlighted in the New England Journal of Medicine. For access to the COPIC 2017 Annual Report, click the link below.
