Law symposium to look at patient responsibility

March 6, 2013

This year’s Indiana Health Law Review Symposium at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law will explore patient responsibility as a key to improving the health care system.

The symposium, “Are We Willing to Trust Patients? Models of Responsibility, Consumerism and Blame,” is from 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday in Wynne Courtroom of the Indianapolis law school.

The keynote speaker is George Loewenstein, Herbert A. Simon Professor of Economics and Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University, who will open the symposium with a 9 a.m. talk exploring whether patients can be encouraged to making better health care decisions with diverse incentives and disincentives.

The event also includes three panel discussions with experts on the evolving role of the patient in the provision of health care.

More information on the event can be found on the law school’s website.

The symposium is free and open to the public. Participants are responsible for their own meal during the lunch break. CLE credit is available.
