Program Number: 30275 Presenter: Robert N.H. Christmas, Esq., Barry M. Rothchild, Esq.

The Intersection Between Law & Medicine (11/05/2020)

Program Number: 30274 Presenter: Clifford A. Rieders, Esq.

This subject is a culmination of many years’ lecturing on the subject of law and medicine and how the two interact. Subjects covered include peer review; risks and complications; the value of good bedside manners; how to avoid medical malpractice; what to do about obstructive and difficult conduct; and many other areas. The course is useful not only to lawyers, but also healthcare professionals. The concept is that, except for a few physicians, much of what occurs in the law is alien to the medical profession. Likewise, lawyers have some difficulty in understanding the medical world. There is an intersection between these two fields based upon the requirement to work together on behalf of patients, medicine and the legal system. This seminar is intended to explore some of those topics in a novel, interesting and thoughtful manner.
