6051: 2017 Lessons Learned from Malpractice Claims

Bristol, TN US
March 22, 2017

Advances in technology, increasing numbers of advanced practice providers and evolving reimbursement models continue to change healthcare delivery and consequently, risks. This program will focus on top risks from the perspective of a medical malpractice  trial lawyer including electronic records, patient interaction, informed consent, scope of practice, vicarious liability and documentation. We will identify solutions to successfully manage them in today’s environment.

Using an interactive format, the presenter will review several malpractice lawsuits, analyze the “lessons learned” and discuss the current evidence supporting best practices. Physicians, clinicians and staff will all find valuable takeaways in this presentation.
