Duration: 75 minutes
Webinar recorded on: 4/28/2020

In ongoing work on the front lines of COVID-19 response, health centers have had to develop new and innovative ways to take care of patients and broader communities. From virtual visits to participating in Emergency Room diversion and medical surges, health centers have had to extend well beyond the boundaries of “traditional” health center activities. 

 While developing these new approaches to care, on an almost daily basis, health centers are also trying to ensure that they maintain FTCA coverage for themselves, their employees, and any qualified contractors.  

In this interactive webinar, we will explore FTCA coverage for various COVID-19 related activities and discuss how you can best safeguard malpractice liability protection for your health center and staff members in these unusual times. We will offer practical tips to protect FTCA coverage as you continue to remain nimble in your response to this pandemic.

Target Audience

  • Executive Level/C-Suite
  • Compliance Officers
  • Grants Managers

  • New Staff; Medical Directors; Risk Managers
  • Anyone who works on deeming applications

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
