Professional Negligence – Public Health Management and the Law
Monday, June 26, 2023 | 12:30-2:00pm | Online
Patient care providers can be held accountable in different ways for violating the professional standards of care that result in patient harm: administrative disciplinary action under State authorities, civil liability for negligence, and even criminal liability. Each form of legal liability is different in terms of the source of law and procedurally in application. This workshop will focus on the law of negligence: what this legal concept means, how is a negligence action commenced, the elements of negligence that must be proved, and how those elements are established in a case. It is essential to know the basic legal framework and principles in this type of legal proceeding so that the health care provider has a basic understanding of how these actions arise, how they are carried out, and how an attorney may conduct their defense.
