Program Information


Topics in Risk Mangement, 5th Edition

Physicians interested in risk management and legal alternatives to and implications of malpractice claims will appreciate the valuable information included in this audio program. Led by Course Director Richard P. Kidwell, JD, Senior Associate Counsel/VP Risk Management, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the program features other leading medical-legal experts who address key areas in risk management, as well as malpractice litigation from a judge’s perspective, peer review, disclosures, and the affordable health care act.

Module 1 - Judge’s Perspective on Medical Malpractice Litigation
Hon Eugene F. Scanlon, Jr., JD, provides a judge’s unique perspective on medical malpractice litigation. He discusses the cornerstones to a good defense in medical malpractice cases, the preparation and performance required to make a sound deposition, insights into today’s plaintiff lawyers, a description of the average jury and how best to relate to them, important factors that can sway a jury’s decision, and realistic expectations regarding the provider’s time requirements when dealing with a malpractice case.

Module 2 - Peer Review
Howard A. Chajson, BS, JD, Esq., tackles the issue of peer review, which is a confidential, legally protected process in which professional health care providers analyze and review the care provided by a peer.

Module 3 - Disclosure Does Not Lead to Litigation
Lisa M. Painter, RN, DNP, gives an overview of Pennsylvania’s Medical Care Availability and Reduction of Error (MCARE) Act which requires that verbal and written disclosure be provided to the patient within 7-days once a “serious event” has occurred while providing care to the patient, but that requirement has not resulted in an increase in litigation.

Module 4 - Basics of the Affordable Health Care Act
Richard P. Kidwell, JD, describes the basics of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), such as health insurance exchanges, Medicaid expansion issues, and which consumers will have access to reduced-cost health insurance, as well as premium and cost-sharing subsidies.

Module 5 - Risk Management
Martin Fleishman, MD, brings his unique perspective about screening prospective lawsuits and helping callers and the law firm gauge the potential success of a malpractice claim. Through his experience, we learn about the medically injured and the blame stories that lead people to consider filing a lawsuit.

Module 6 - Ethics
Jason Byron, MA, describes the role of clinical ethicists as it applies to helping surrogate decision makers understand the patient’s medical status, communicate with the medical team, and navigate the emotions, finances, and conflicts that arise during the decision-making process.
