2020 Spring Bouquet: Registration

MLST’s 4th Annual Spring Bouquet
Wednesday, April 22, 2020 | 6:00 Reception, 6:30pm Dinner & Presentations

Please join us for an evening of dining, education and an opportunity to mingle and network with other professionals from the medical and legal communities. 

An Update from the CPSO: We are honoured to be hosting Dr. Nancy Whitmore, who joined the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario as Registrar and CEO in June 2018. Dr. Whitmore will be bringing greetings from the College and updating us on recent initiatives and directions.

Legal and Clinical Perspectives on Recent Developments Involving End of Life Issues: Daphne Jarvis will update us on recent changes and the current status of various issues relating to end of life (e.g., DNR orders, the legal definition of death, and MAID). Dr. Laura Hawryluck will then offer her perspective, as a clinician working in critical care, on the practical impact and challenges of such legal policies and principles. 

Medical Misadventure (?) in the Operating Room: Armstrong v. Royal Victoria Hospital, 2019 ONCA 963: In December 2019, in a split decision, the Ontario Court of Appeal explored whether an injury suffered intraoperatively was the result of “negligence” or medical misadventure (a bad result, despite good and reasonable effort, and therefore not negligent). Ryan Breedon was plaintiff’s counsel and will explain the case and its significance.
