Course Brochure

The 35th year of our annual Risk Management conference on Obstetrics & Gynecology, and multiple medical specialities and the Law, held in the Bahamas was once again an outstanding success. One hundred and fifty one attendees & faculty focused on standards of care, updates & advances in the various specialties, & the prevention & avoidance of medical error. Written evaluations rated the conference as excellent [ 80%], while 97% stated excellent or very good.

The 36th year conference will be at the Mauna Lani Resort, now part of the upscale Auberge Collection, Big Island of Hawaii, January 2-8, 2020. Details will appear on our Center's website [www.chginc.org]

Target Audience:
The major objectives in these two conferences are to enhance the continuing education of a range of
specialties in medicine and allied professions, including obstetrics, gynecology, midwifery, neonatology, medicine, surgery, family medicine, emergency medicine, cardiology, radiology, human genetics, and ethics. The key reasons that have characterized the success of these conferences for the past 35 and 19 years, respectively, are the highly qualified and renowned medical faculty, and the interactive insights and lessons concerning the role of law and lawyers, communicated by acknowledged “super lawyers.” Only through a thorough understanding of the complexities of medicine and law can physicians and litigators hope to deal effectively with the continuing challenges of medical and legal practice.

The specific goals of these conferences are to:
• Teach healthcare professionals to better comprehend the machinations of negligence law, and to
develop a more complete awareness of the need for anticipatory and safety practice.
• Teach legal professionals about the complex issues encountered in the practice of medicine, including the intricacies of decision-making, aiming to sharpen their understanding on behalf of their clients, both plaintiff and defense. Once again, an extraordinarily experienced and superb faculty has been assembled for the 36th and 20th anniversary conferences that will be important to all the specialties mentioned, including nurse practitioners, trial attorneys, in-house counsel, pediatricians, primary care physicians, insurers and claims personnel, risk managers and all providers of healthcare.

Conference Overview:
“Despite substantially higher spending on healthcare per person than comparable high-income countries, maternal deaths and severe maternal morbidity levels in the USA more closely resemble some low-income countries.” “The steep increase of deaths is mirrored by another troubling trend in the past decade, the notable increase in serious, but often preventable, obstetric complications.” These quotes from the Lancet cover and editorial respectively in the September 2018 issue are the cause of grave concern for all who provide care for women, either during preconception, pregnancy, delivery, or the postpartum period. The fact that both Black and Hispanic pregnant women have 2-4 times higher risk of death compared to white women is truly troubling. This is particularly so since more than 60% of these deaths were avoidable. In 2015, the US maternal mortality rate was 26.4 per 100,000 live births, with rates in Canada and Sweden being 4.4 and 7.3 per 100,000 respectively. These stark facts point especially to failures in pre- and postgraduate medical education and recognizes that medical negligence is at once individual, systemic, organizational, and compounded by patientrelated factors.

Insufficient attention is paid to the cognitive sciences that have such a key role in medical care. More than 100 cognitive biases affect decision-making, clinical reasoning, and critical thinking. Teaching debiasing techniques could seriously and positively influence the major cause of medical negligence, that is diagnostic error coupled with faculty decision-making. There are over 200,000 deaths each year due to medical negligence.

It is time to require medical students, residents, and fellows to obtain a certificate in risk management before graduation and/or before entering clinical practice. For physicians in practice, a required 1-hour online CME refresher course on risk management upon license renewal is needed.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this conference, healthcare professionals will be able to articulate the role of law and lawyers in medical malpractice and discuss the complexities of the legal process.

At the conclusion of this conference, legal professionals will be able to describe “best-evidence” in medical malpractice as it pertains to obstetrics, gynecology, midwifery, neonatology, medicine, surgery, family medicine, emergency medicine, cardiology, radiology, and human genetics.
