Hot Topics in Medical Malpractice

Event Description

Please note the date change to Fri. October 11 (2nd Friday)!

Breakfast and registration will start at 7:30 a.m.  The CLE program will begin at 8:00 a.m. 


The Minnesota appellate courts have issued several recent decisions that could have a significant impact on the scope of medical-malpractice liability for individual providers and health systems. 
In April 2019, the Minnesota Supreme Court issued a decision in Warren v. Dinter, which held that a physician/patient relationship is not a required element in a medical malpractice claim and left many open questions about the potential liability for informal consultations.  In July 2019, the Minnesota Court of Appeals confirmed that hospitals and health-care entities are not vicariously liable for the acts or omissions of non-employed physicians, and the Minnesota Supreme Court has granted review. 
Join us for a discussion of these two cases, and the impact of these decisions on health care providers in Minnesota.
