Communication and Resolution Programs (CRPs) promise to reduce liability costs, promote a culture of safety and provide a vehicle for disclosure and healing between providers and patients after a medical error. Over the past decade, several CRPs have been pioneered and studied at leading medical centers, with promising results.


On Thursday, February 26th, 2015, The Risk Authority will bring together three leading voices in the field – a health law scholar, a doctor, and a patient, to discuss:

  • Have CRPs delivered on their promise? What does the data show?
  • What best practices have emerged?
  • What challenges need to be overcome?
  • What resources are available to institutions interested in exploring or strengthening CRP’s?


We invite you to participate in this important event and gain insights and solutions into the critical aspects of communication and resolution programs.
