Registration Open for Annual Consent Law Seminar
Attendees receive free 2016 Consent Manual

Seven dates have been set for CHA’s popular Consent Law Seminar, to be held throughout California including April 26 in Ontario, April 27 in San Diego, May 3 in Fresno, May 10 in Pasadena, May 11 in Irvine, May 25 in San Ramon and June 1 in Sacramento.

This year’s seminar will feature sessions on decision-making for patients; labor and delivery; new laws and updates; and the new End of Life Option Act, as well as other considerations surrounding the end-of-life process. The popular critical thinking session has been expanded to include more common, but complicated, topics to challenge participants’ analytical skills using case scenarios.

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 at van Hall Law Office. New to this year’s program is Linda Garrett of Risk Management Services, a claims administration and risk management service for public entities.

Free Consent Manual
All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the updated 2016 Consent Manual, the most comprehensive and acclaimed resource available to hospitals on patient consent for medical treatment and related health care law. Those who can’t attend the seminar but would like to order the manual can visit to pre-order (the 2016 edition will be available in late April).

A seminar brochure will be mailed soon. For more information or to register, visit
