RISK MANAGEMENT PUBLICATION

End-of-Life Healthcare Liability Risk Management and Ethical Considerations

May 2018

The risk management strategies presented in this article are based on case studies that have been drawn from lawsuits reported in the media, appellate opinions and NORCAL closed claims. They illustrate the variety of different ways healthcare teams grapple with aid-in-dying requests, advance directives, pain management with opioids and cultural differences surrounding the dying process.

This article includes healthcare ethics content, which may help meet CME credit ethics requirements in some states.
