Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of General Surgery Volume 60, Issue 02: Common Bile Duct Injuries/ Appropriate Disclosure.

The goals of this program are to improve outcomes of laparoscopic cholecystectomy by avoiding common bile duct injuries, and to encourage appropriate management and disclosure of medical errors. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Reduce the incidence of common bile duct injuries.
2. Limit complications and litigation by diagnosing and managing common bile duct injuries intraoperatively.
3. Determine whether conversion from laparoscopic to open cholecystectomy is warranted.
4. Discourage malpractice litigation through appropriate initial disclosure of adverse events or medical errors to patients and families.
5. Follow guidelines for providing patients and families with a postanalysis disclosure.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
