|Current Topics in Anesthesia, September 6-9, 2022|
This course is designed for physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other healthcare providers who must maintain knowledge about the legal implications of practice in healthcare.
This is a legal risk management course designed to update anesthesia providers on the various legal issues that may be encountered and provide practical information for use in practice. Healthcare and law intersect on many different levels because of the complexity of federal and state regulations and a multitude of state laws regarding malpractice, contracts, and other areas of risk.
There are legal implications to almost every aspect of healthcare, and therefore, the importance of a general understanding of the substantial legal risks inherent to practice in healthcare cannot be overemphasized. Courses in Health Law are traditionally absent from training curricula in the healthcare professions.
This course will provide a concise overview for anesthesia providers and will be presented by an experienced anesthesia provider who has more than ten years of experience as a practicing New York attorney concentrating in healthcare law.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
Discuss the notions of liability and evidentiary burden.
Discuss how a lawsuit is commenced, what it means to ‘be served’ and the importance of a timely response to the outcome of a case.
Discuss the importance of the type of malpractice insurance carried and the pitfalls that may be encountered.
Explore the implications of risk management, apology and disclosure, mortality and morbidity discussions, and quality reports.
Discuss what a contract is and is not, including legal terms and how they pose risk to the provider.
Discuss why state boards and staff credentialing can be far more damaging to the healthcare provider than a malpractice suit.
Discuss how Human Resource Law is an evolving area of risk to all providers.
Discuss various federal regulations, provider risk and plan for compliance.
