The field of health care, with its myriad interconnected “players” and complexity of transactions, has long been fertile ground for many types of disputes and conflicts, ranging from general contract matters to medical malpractice issues. With the advent of the Affordable Care Act, it is especially incumbent upon experienced mediators interested in mediating health care-related matters to become well-educated in the nuances and uniqueness of disputes and conflicts within the field. This two-day, highly interactive advanced workshop is designed to provide just such an educational experience.
Through engaging dialogue, interactive exercises, and six simulated health care mediations facilitated by a faculty of experienced health care mediators, attendees will acquire vital knowledge about health care practice and techniques and refine skills indispensable to the effective health care mediator.
The workshop will address the following topics:
- Managed care vs accountable care
- Payer-ER physician group disputes
- In-hospital disputes
- Bioethics mediation
- Recruitment agreement disputes
- General contract disputes
- Peer review disputes
- Anatomy of a medical malpractice case
- Research relevant to medical malpractice lawsuits
- Adverse events, medical errors, and conflict resolution in hospitals
- Ethics and standards for mediators
The registration fee includes all course materials and a continental breakfast and lunch each day.

Prior mediation experience is required to fully participate in and benefit from all the course has to offer.
