This webinar will present an engaging discussion on protection and advocacy agencies, their statutory authority and history, their role in protecting and advocating for patient rights, and their specific activities. The webinar will discuss how health care providers and providers' counsel can best interact with P&A agencies to ensure compliance with applicable laws and develop a cohesive working relationship. Panelists will include the National Disability Rights Network's (the national umbrella organization for P&As) Executive Director, legal counsel for one of the state P&As, and outside provider counsel who routinely work with P&As in various states.
