NorCal Consent and Related Health Care Law Seminar Begins Wednesday
Attendees will receive free 2015 Consent Manual

This year’s Consent and Related Health Care Law Seminar will feature sessions on mandated reporting requirements, including often-overlooked conditions and new workplace violence regulations; the impact of electronics in health care settings; updates on privacy breaches; and end-of-life care and decision-making. The popular critical thinking session will feature more out-of-the-ordinary patient situations to challenge participants’ analytical skills. A session on new laws and health care updates is also planned. Remaining programs will be held May 20 in Sacramento, May 21 in Berkeley and May 28 in Fresno.

Veteran faculty includes Susan Penney, director of risk management for the University of California San Francisco clinical enterprises, and Suzanne van Hall, private practice attorney of van Hall Law Office. New to this year’s program is Johanna Klohn, chief risk officer for the University of California Los Angeles Health System.
