Ethics and Malpractice: Will the Expert Witness Please Take the Stand?
Date & Time
Thursday, July 18, 2019, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
As health care professionals, it is not a matter of if, but when: many of us will be sued at least once in our careers. If the proper standard of care was not met, or if a patient felt that the care that they received from a dentist is incorrect or substandard, a professional liability case is considered. These may be initiated as a lawsuit, arbitration or peer review proceeding. This seminar seeks to educate the dental professional to appreciate the importance of the standard of care as it relates to treatment, patient expectations, legal considerations, and current technology in order to avoid the difficulties that accompany a lawsuit or peer review case. Learn how to stay out of trouble and what you can do should trouble come knocking on your door.
