MPS 2024 Risk Avoidance & Risk Management Conference

Saturday, March 9th, 2024
8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Via Zoom Video Conference

The Massachusetts Psychiatric Society is pleased to present the 2024 Risk Avoidance and Risk Management Conference. This is the annual risk management conference with a successful record spanning decades. The conference focuses on actual issues faced by practicing psychiatrists. It will increase understanding of the various roles of psychiatrists interfacing with the law and appreciate the challenges of psychiatrists in court. Each year faculty review timely and relevant risk management issues in conjunction with other invited local experts. We utilize several didactic lectures with significant time for questions raised by conference attendees. This year, topics addressed will include: Dr. Philip Candilis discussing practical ethics for psychiatrists in clinical practice; Dr. Thomas Gutheil reviewing major issues relevant to general risk management and fielding participant risk management questions; Dr. Ronald Schouten discussing the practice of threat assessment and management and its lessons for psychiatric clinicians; Dr. Jeffrey Kerner discussing practical risk management guidance for outpatient psychiatric practice; Attorney Charles (David) Cash providing guidance on issues related to infirmity, disability, retirement and practice closure; Dr. James Ellison presenting issues related to aging, cognitive changes and disorders, and implications for practicing clinicians in facing their own and their colleagues capacity for continued practice and end of career considerations.
