Program Agenda:

Spotlight on Legal and Ethical Issues and the Disparities in Health Care (Part One)

Speakers will discuss the legal and ethical issues brought to light during the human rights and public health crisis posed by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Issues to be addressed include the balance between the ethical mandates and potential legal consequences of health care providers’ decision-making while operating in an environment when patient needs far exceeded available human and medical resources; the role of immunity afforded during such circumstances; and the disparities illuminated within our existing health care delivery system.

Controversies, Legal and Regulatory Reform and Moving Forward with Patient Care Delivery: (Part Two)

As the Pandemic runs its course and fades over time, legal and ethical issues will continue to surface as we move toward a new normal. Speakers during Part 2 will discuss the legislative status of the immunities offered to health care providers; the health care controversies and litigation arising within all tiers of the health care delivery system in the wake of the human rights and public health crises presented by the COVID-19 Pandemic. And moving forward with optimism, speakers will highlight how the Pandemic has demonstrated the benefits and need to expand the use of telemedicine long after the Pandemic subsides. Finally, experts will discuss the status of developing a safe and effective vaccine and the issues of achieving herd immunity.
