Session Description:
This session is designed to build on last year’s popular session by the same presenters, further familiarizing long-term care physicians and medical directors with the processes involved in the provision of LTC expert consultation and testimony. Attendees will be given a brief review of the litigation process, including burdens of proof, typical strategies and the actual trial process. The presenters will then present cases drawn from their extensive experience as expert consultants in LTC litigation that are demonstrative of the wide variety of issues and situations that the expert may be called upon to render an opinion. In the course of the case presentations, the process of review and testimony in a plaintiff’s case, a defense case, and other types of issues such as competency and capacity determinations will be discussed. The presenters will also discuss the opportunity the consultant often has to provide an attorney with advice about correcting deficient processes or policies that are uncovered during review.
