2017 Risk Education Programs

February, 2017

This year's live Risk Education seminars use real-life experiences and situations as teaching tools for you and your staff. Registration will be open soon! 

“Practicing on the Grid” is presented by Justin Joy, JD, CIPP, an attorney with Lewis, Thomason, King, Krieg & Waldrop, P.C. in Memphis, Tennessee, and Jeffrey Woods, JD, the Director of Risk Education at SVMIC. The purpose of this seminar is to discuss the legalities and risks associated with the use of telemedicine, electronic health records (EHR) and patient portals, as well as provide an overview of current cyber liability issues in the medical profession.

“Lessons Learned from Malpractice Claims” is presented by F. Laurens “Larry” Brock, a partner in the Nashville and Chattanooga offices of Adams and Reese. This program examines actual cases and will focus on top risks from the perspective of a medical malpractice trial lawyer including electronic records, patient interaction, informed consent, scope of practice, vicarious liability and documentation.

Either of these programs qualify physician policyholders for a 10% premium credit as well as CME/AMA Category 1 Credits™. A complete listing of your 2017 Risk Education offerings will be arriving in your mailboxes and on www.svmic.com soon!
