73rd Annual National Athletic Trainers’ Association Clinical Symposia & AT Expo
June 30 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Montgomery McCracken attorney Kacie Kergides will be serving on a panel at the 73rd Annual National Athletic Trainers’ Association Clinical Symposia & AT Expo. Her session is titled, “Staying Courtside and Out of Court: What Athletic Trainers Need to Know About the Legal Process.”
Law may not be the first thing an athletic trainer considers, but the changing landscape of the law and society is having a major impact on the profession. Recent lawsuits involving the standard of care have put athletic trainers in the legal crossfire. This session will provide an overview of legal principles that affect the athletic training practice, including HIPAA, state privacy laws and laws regarding carrying/dispensing medications. It will also provide an overview of professional liability issues and a discussion on recent legal issues and trends that affect the practice. At the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
- Explain the basis of a malpractice lawsuit
- Understand strategies to avoid malpractice litigation
- Explain the basis of the U.S. legal system
