Partner Michael Callahan will speak on “New Federal Legislation and its Impact on Medical Malpractice Litigation: The Implications of the Federal Patient Safety Act for Your Healthcare Clients” at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 10.

This program examines the key components, terminology and interpretation of The Patient Safety Act as it relates to protections afforded and implications for medical malpractice litigation nationally. 

This presentation provides an overview of the basic tenets and confidentiality and privilege protections afforded under the Patient Safety Act and provides a couple of real-life hypothetical scenarios to better enable health care attorneys, and particularly malpractice defense counsel, to understand how the Act may positively and negatively affect future defense strategies.
