https://www.fedbar.org/event/webinar-empathic-communication/


This webinar will discuss how healthcare providers and practices may avoid medical malpractice litigation through the use of empathic communication. Specifically, panelists will discuss and consider:

  • Apology Statutes;

  • The Rules of Evidence;

  • Apology and Forgiveness;

  • The CANDOR Program (promotes a culture of safety that focuses on caring for the patient, family, and caregiver by providing freedom for providers to acknowledge an error without fear that the admission will be used against them in court); and

  • Criminalization of Medical Malpractice.

We hope to see you at the CLE. Register now!
