Brick Gentry’s president Paul Drey twice addresses the Iowa Medical Society (IMS) at its Annual Conference in Coralville, Iowa this month.
“Protect Yourself: The Basics of Employment Contracts,” illuminates considerations for physician employment agreements. The program synopsis raises important questions: “The work does not end once you verbally accept a position. But does the offer meet your needs? Will this contract limit your practice options in the future? Find out answers to these questions and more during this session.”
Paul Drey’s second presentation is in conjunction with Timothy Irhig, M.D., of UnityPoint Clinic – Trinity Palliative Medicine. “Legal and Ethical Issues Related to End-of-Life Care,” is summarized in the IMS program: “Carrying out the wishes of patients at the end of their lives is important. When a patient has an advanced directive, healthcare professionals need to know what the legal and ethical guidelines are regarding the decisions that were made prior to or early in their disease process. This session features information you need to care for your patients and protect yourself.”
