                     Kelly K. Dineen, RN, JD, PhD, Assistant Professor Director, Health Law Program, Creighton University School of Law

Over the last decade, myriad opioid prescribing laws and policies were enacted, including enhanced surveillance, investigation, and sanction of prescribers. However, existing state and federal laws offer no definitions of inappropriate prescribing. This presentation will set out a framework for defining and evaluating prescribing behavior as a necessary antecedent for sanctioning it.

  • Fundamentals of the attorney client privilege, and unintended waiver of the privilege through multi-purpose communications, poorly structured investigations, and disclosures to third party consultants.
  • How attorney misconduct can harm the client’s substantive interests.

  • The unauthorized practice of law and in-house counsel.
