Webinar Information



This webinar series replaces the 2020 Consent Law Seminar.

Consent law has changed again, privacy law just got more complicated and the pace around many hospitals shows no sign of slowing. High-stakes decisions need to be made quickly. You need to be informed.

Join CHA’s Consent and Related Health Care Law webinar series to delve into high-risk consent and privacy issues that challenge hospitals and could lead to litigation. Expert faculty will bring you up to speed on the most important legal changes affecting risk managers and privacy officers, prepare you to comply with new laws, and shed light on legal gray areas. Thought provoking, real-world scenarios will hone your critical thinking skills.

Recommended for:

Risk managers, health information officers, privacy officers, compliance officers, in-house legal counsel, health care attorneys, nurses and nurse managers, social workers, quality management staff, admissions staff, emergency department staff, discharge planners, clinical staff and administrators.
