The Law-Medicine Center at Case Western Reserve University School of Law will host an interdisciplinary conference—”Restoring Medical Professionalism: Physicians as Advocates for their Patients”—Friday, March 25, and Saturday, March 26.
The ability of physicians to advocate for their patients is an essential aspect of their professionalism and critical for patient trust and well-being. Yet pressures on physicians from employers and others have limited physicians’ ability to fulfill this vital obligation. The discussions across this two-day event will aim to explore ways to strengthen physicians’ ability to advocate for their patients.
The conference will be open to the public, webcast, and videotaped for later viewing. It will begin with proposals from invited experts, followed by discussion with the presenters, other experts, and the general audience.
