The focus for this half-day regional workshop is on examining issues associated with reporting requirements and confidentiality when physician health problems arise. Rick Barton of Procopio will lead the presentation designed to clarify guidelines from the National Practitioners Data Bank. Members of medical staffs, peer review bodies and Wellbeing Committees will leave the workshop with a clearer understanding of what to do when presented with new and existing cases. There will be time for questions to be asked and resources to be presented.
