Part I: Introduction to Mediation Process and Skills for Use in Healthcare Disputes
This course will introduce theory, principles, process steps, essential skills and ethical requirements in mediation to those who are considering service as a mediator. The course will provide the trainee with a firm foundation for additional learning and honing of skills as a neutral. Training techniques will include lecture; observation; role plays with coaching by trainers; and post-role play debriefing.
Part II: Introduction to Mediating Medical Malpractice Claims
A specific application of mediation to medical malpractice claims and lawsuits, this training will introduce how interest-based mediators proceed on the principle that the mediation is not simply bargaining for money and as a result use techniques to create greater satisfaction for the parties and promote resolution. The training will benefit those with some experience in mediation, physicians or other healthcare providers, and those who have received introductory training in mediation, including those who attend the Part. I: Introduction to Mediation Process and Skills which precedes this training. Attendees will find this training a helpful "next step" in their learning as they will be exposed to how to mediate difficult cases, which often have heightened emotion. Such lessons are transferrable to other types of healthcare mediations. Training will include lecture, observation, and opportunity to practice in role plays with coaching by trainers, and debriefing.
Offered in conjunction with the Physicians and Physician Organizations Law Institute and the Hospitals and Health Systems Law Institute programs, space will be limited.
Attendees may attend one or both trainings. A discount will be provided for those who attend both trainings.
More information will be available soon!
