Sharon Peters, Member of the Firm, co-presents "Resignations & Reporting: Competing Challenges of Fairness and Compliance with NPDB / State Reporting Requirements," a webinar hosted by the American Health Law Association (AHLA).

Discussion topics include a review of the public policy reasons for National Practitioner Data Bank reporting requirements and a general comparison with state board reporting requirements. The webinar also includes an analysis of what an investigation means when the practitioner is entitled to notice, ideas and best practices for accepting resignations, and how to ensure fairness and due process.
