FREE WEBINAR - Risk Management & Ethics: COVID-19 Rationing - Thursday, April16th - 2-3pm

Complimentary Live Webinar Risk Management & Ethics: COVID-19 Rationing

Thursday, April 16

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT

Rationing tests and medical treatment is a worst-case scenario for everyone involved and is the living embodiment of a real “Catch-22” situation. This presentation will explore the types of rationing of healthcare testing and treatment, who should be the decision-maker, frameworks of decision-making used by states, clinical risk considerations, communication strategies, risks of liability, and some important takeaways for risk managers and providers. Ethical and operational support, structure, and consistency  are the keys to moving forward in these trying times. Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Define where healthcare rationing and the role of the risk manager overlap.
  • Analyze the types and elements of healthcare rationing.
  • Identify and evaluate key approaches for the healthcare risk manager when faced with the  rationing of healthcare.
