This member benefit webinar is composed of three one-hour segments designed to inform young lawyers and others interested in dispute resolution. This webinar will cover the “basics” of healthcare mediation and arbitration, the services provided by the major healthcare dispute resolution organizations and the dispute resolution training each makes available; and a discussion of how healthcare DR works in practice. This webinar series is designed for young lawyers aspiring to be neutrals, “novices” in dispute resolution who wish to hone their skills, and other neutrals who wish to further develop their skills and expand their practices.
Part 1: The “Basics” or Healthcare Dispute Resolution 101 will serve as an introduction to dispute resolution and describe the basic principles of mediation and arbitration focusing on the “mechanics” and common features of all mediations and arbitrations, including those in the healthcare arena. Common benefits shared by mediation and arbitration, e.g., informality, confidentiality, neutrality, usually less expensive than litigation, as well as differences, e.g., arbitration has some features of a trial, will be addressed. This webinar has been structured to facilitate questions and encourage lively discussion.
