Program information

Program Title

You’ve Been Served: The Anatomy of a Lawsuit


Tucker Poling, JD – KAMMCO Vice President, Claims

Program Description

The prospect of a medical professional liability (MPL) claim can elicit fear and anxiety for many healthcare providers. In this year’s Loss Prevention program, Tucker Poling, JD, will provide a detailed and educational explanation of the processes involved in malpractice claims and litigation to assist providers and healthcare staff in alleviating their fears and facilitating constructive analysis and discussion. This education will also assist attendees in determining what actions or events may trigger an MPL claim and what communication and patient safety measures can help reduce risks. The overall goal is to give providers and staff accurate information to reduce fear of the unknown and empower them to apply this information to reduce risks of adverse patient experiences and limit their exposure to MPL claims.

Program Objectives

  • Identify the process of healthcare professional liability claims and litigation and recognize how those who evaluate claims view common patient care scenarios.
  • Describe the implementation of preventative actions and tools available to protect healthcare providers from potential liability.
  • Understand how the KAMMCO Claims team and peer support work to help providers receive individualized emotional and legal support during a lawsuit to maintain their health and well-being when claims occur.
  • Evaluate what each person’s role may be within the course of the professional liability claim and how that role may affect the outcome of the claim.
