Seminar on Suicide, Opioid Risk Management Available to AAN Members

September 29, 2010


Professional Risk Management Services, Inc., the AAN's partner in providing medical professional liability insurance and risk management education to Academy members through The Neurologists' Program, is hosting a seminar exclusively for neurologists and psychiatrists to help them mitigate risks associated with suicidal patients and other problematic issues.

"Advanced Topics in Medical Professional Liability Reduction" will be offered on November 13, 2010, at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, VA. Attendees will benefit from the knowledge of a unique panel of medical and legal experts as they discuss patient suicide risk assessment, the latest proposed Opioid REMS program, risks in forensic practice, qualifications for expert witness testimony, and much more—including a mock deposition of an expert witness and cross-examination of a defendant physician.

The faculty includes the chair of the AAN's Ethics, Law and Humanities Committee, Daniel Larriviere, MD, JD, Associate Professor of Neurology at the University of Virginia School of Medicine and Affiliated Faculty at the University of Virginia School of Law, in Charlottesville, VA.

Attendees can earn up to 5.5 hours CME. The event is free to AAN members who are insured with The Neurologists' Program. Early registration for non-insureds is discounted to $350 from the regular $395 fee that will be charged after October 15. The cost to residents and fellows is only $40.
