Comprehensive program materials include Legal and Medical Ethics resources such as Chapter 4, Rules of The Florida Bar, 2008 Professional Guidelines, and Ethics Opinions Subject Index. Because our theme is lawyers at the bedside and the program involves legal and medical ethics issues, speakers and attendees are encouraged to wear “scrubs”.
