Register Here

Physicians, dentists, attorneys and educators who practice in the health care industry and its related fields recognize that the practice of medicine is complicated by abundant legislative requirements, administrative rules and regulations and Federal/ State court decisions interpreting those laws. It is difficult to maintain a working knowledge of these developments. This meeting will provide details of new legislation, rules and court decisions, societal changes and shifts in the marketplace that will impact the practice of medicine, special and vulnerable populations in particular. Key changes impacting the practice of medicine and law during the past one to two years include: fraud investigations against health professionals, the ethical and legal issues of individuals with traumatic brain injury, the push delivery of care models that emphasize quality and safety within multidisciplinary teams, challenges to the Affordable Care Act, issues with vaccinations and personal exemptions, and individuals with mental health problems in front of civil and criminal courts.

OBJECTIVES
The 61st Annual Conference of the American College of Legal Medicine will focus on topics related to Diversity, Equity, and Stewardship in New Millennium Legal Medicine. By the conclusion of the meeting, participants should be able to:

  • Describe recent legislative and court opinions affecting medical and dental practice.
