Twitter Chat Wrap-Up: Risk Management – Avoiding Legal Pitfalls for You & Your Lab

On Tuesday, July 20 at 9pm EST, I took over the CAP Twitter handle (@Pathologists) to host a discussion on what pathologists and laboratories need to know about risk assessment and legal issues. I was joined by expert panelists Timothy Allen, MD, JD, FCAP (@TimAllenMDJD) and attorney Elizabeth L.B. Greene (@Eliz_LB_Greene).

Below are some highlights from the discussion:
