Navigating the Murky Waters of Claims, Peer Review, and the Dreaded Board Complaint

Medical Mutual's 2024 Risk Management Seminar

Wednesday, June 12, 2024
Noon to 4pm
Harraseeket Inn, Freeport, Maine

When you’re the subject of a medmal claim, a clinical peer review, or a complaint to the Board of Licensure, what you do and don’t do can make a significant difference in the eventual outcome.

Join us for this informative afternoon seminar where you’ll learn the kind of do’s and don’ts that can save individuals, practices, and hospitals from making avoidable—and potentially costly—mistakes in the event of a claim.
