The Aging Physician: Balancing Safety, Dignity, and Compliance


Tuesday, July 2, 2013
At the 2013 Annual Meeting

This luncheon presentation is brought to you by the Medical Staff, Credentialing, and Peer Review Practice Group (MSCPR PG).


The goal of this presentation will be to provide training that will enable attorneys to create a systemic and compliant approach to the “aging physician” as a unique and challenging sub-set of potential impairment:

The panel will address the following topics:

  1. Why is the aging physician a growing and unique issue? Objective: understand why the aging physician requires an individualistic and systemic approach.
  2. Is there scientific evidence that there may be potential treatable impairments with the aging process? Objective: understand the evidence supporting a growing likelihood of undiagnosed impairments with age.
  3. Navigating the Americans with Disabilities Act, 1990 (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act, 1967 (ADEA), and relevant medical staff and employment issues. Objective: understand the relevant issues surrounding the ADA, ADEA, and medical staff versus employment issues.
  4. Policy approaches that balance safety and compliance. Objective: learn a policy approach that creates a systemic and individualized approach for the aging physician.
