Webinar on collaborative law

I just held my first "test" webinar, bringing together: physician, nurse, psychologist, attorneys/mediators, patient safety advocate, family members, law school professors, and organizational development/systems thinkers. Such a great conversation, bringing so many perspectives into the conversation. Wonderful, hopeful group, discussing medical error, attorneys' roles, mediators' roles, patient advocates' roles, family members' experiences of medical error, systems thinkers' ideas about medical error, informed patient choice issues, and language in law and medicine.

I hope to continue to expand the conversation to include others involved in prevention of and response to medical error situations. So much work to be done!
