It will begin with a case study to demonstrate the various legal issues that arise when diagnosed with cancer (e.g., employment, health insurance, estate planning, etc.) and will follow the case study patient through the care continuum until the patient’s death. Throughout the webinar, the relevant laws will be discussed at different points in the health care continuum. To sign up for the webinar, please click here.
