New MassBar Beat episode focuses on transparency in med-mal cases

Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019

massbarbeatforeJThe Massachusetts Bar Association has released a new MassBar Beat podcast episode: “Transparency: The New Normal in Medical Malpractice?’

The traditional “deny and defend” attitude to claims of medical malpractice may be changing as doctors and hospitals embrace transparency, disclosure, and even apologies following medical errors. In this episode, host Jordan Rich talks with former MBA President Jeffrey Catalano of Todd & Weld LLP, a patient-safety advocate, about how medical transparency in med-mal cases is gaining traction in Massachusetts and elsewhere, as medical professionals work more openly with patients to prevent problems in the future.
