Speaker: James Weaver, MD -

Topic: "A Surgeon's Opinion of 'Informed Consent'"

Dr. Weaver began practicing vascular and thoracic surgery in Durham in 1983. At this presentation, he will share his career-long interest in medical ethics with the DOCMS. He was the founder of the Clinical Ethics Committee at Durham Regional Hospital (now Duke Regional Hospital) and served as President of the Medical Staff and on the Board of Durham Regional Hospital. He is a past President of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Weaver's presentation will help Medical Students and Residents understand the history of malpractice law and differing perspectives of the legal and medical professions towards the patient. For aspiring and new physicians, join the discussion with Dr. Weaver and DOCMS members on how words influence our understanding and interactions with patients.
