CHA has developed the 2023 Consent Law Seminar to help hospitals stay current on important changes in the law. This is your opportunity to gain insights on legislative and regulatory updates and learn from frontline experiences.

This seminar will focus on legal gray areas in everyday consent issues and address the implications of new health care-related laws. Experienced speakers will offer guidance on challenging situations, including compliance with state law requiring hospitals to allow cannabis. The seminar will begin with consent basics then delve into situations sure to challenge seasoned risk managers and privacy officers.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • “Simple” vs “informed” consent
  • California’s new protections on access to abortion and gender-affirming care after Dobbs
  • A framework for managing complex discharge situations
  • Who can give consent, including explanation of a new law listing permissible surrogate decision makers
  • Ambulance patient offload times (APOT)
  • Provocative consent scenarios from California hospitals
  • New laws on drug and suicide screening, subpoenas

See the agenda for details and join us to share experiences, earn continuing education (CE) credits, and hear how others handle tough consent situations.

Recommended for: Risk managers, privacy officers, compliance officers, in-house legal counsel, nurses and nurse managers, social workers, emergency department staff, discharge planners, and administrators.
