Millennials in Healthcare

State Investigations & Licensing Issues
Presenter: D. Jennifer Andreou

Instinctively, we all know that when someone announces: “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help,” the opposite is likely true. Dealing with state investigations and licensure actions can be daunting for any healthcare provider. This session provided you with the dos and don’ts when someone from the state comes calling.

The new legislation that expands the scope of practice for NPs and physician assistants was discussed, as well as our appellate law expert covered the highlights of pertinent legislation on damages and case law, so you left up to speed with all the key issues.

Intended Audience
