2018 Quarterly Meeting of the Orange County Chapter of CAMSS

Tuesday, August 7, 2018
Hoag Presbyterian Hospital | Newport Beach, CA

David Balfour and Carlo Coppo will provide a “Peer Review Update” at the Quarterly Meeting of the Orange County Chapter of California Association of Medical Staff Services (CAMSS) that will take place on August 7, 2018 at the Hoag Presbyterian Hospital in Newport Beach, CA.  This presentation will focus on recent changes in the law pertaining to the prevention of premature, harassing lawsuits by disciplined physicians attempting to circumvent the peer review system. 

The discussion will elucidate the 2018 decision by the California Supreme Court which exempted peer review actions from protection under California’s Anti-SLAPP Statute while holding that speech-based conduct by peer review bodies is still protected by the free speech statute.  Mr. Balfour and Mr. Coppo will also discuss recent case law that exempts retaliation and whistleblower claimants from exhaustion available peer review internal remedies.
