Advance Health Care Directives - Drafting and Dispute Resolution Strategies

Event Description

Co-Sponsored by the MSBA Health Law Section and Probate & Trust Law Section .

Breakfast, registration and networking will start after 7:30 am.  The CLE program is from 8:00 am to 9:00 am.


The presenters for this program will draw on their experience as an estate planning practitioner, health law and policy attorney, and emergency department physician. The presenters will provide an overview of advance health care directive laws in Minnesota, discuss drafting considerations and practical tips, common problems faced by medical professionals in interpreting and implementing advance directives in the care setting, and processes and procedures followed by health care providers where an advance directive is unclear or there is conflict regarding the patient’s care (whether among family members or between the patient’s family and provider), including court intervention and involvement of hospital ethics committees.
