Field Law's Health law group leverages its long and extensive experience defending health care organizations and professionals to provide comprehensive, practical risk assessments and advice on all aspects of health care organization, delivery and management.

We have written and reviewed policies and procedures in all “sharp end” areas of hospital clinical practice. We have developed, interpreted, facilitated and enforced governance frameworks and guidelines around all aspects of provider-patient interaction, provider teamwork and communication, patient safety incident management, and physician-hospital relations. We have helped our clients to create patient safety and quality practices at the leading edge, and we have defended those practices in public inquiries, fatality inquiries and civil litigation at all Court levels in Alberta and the Northwest Territories.

Our lawyers have contributed significantly to the evolution of a patient-centered, patient safety-centered culture in health systems. We understand how law and risk management must interact with quality, patient safety and patient engagement. Our approach integrates all of these elements to provide the kind of proactive, practical and effective services that health care organizations and professionals demand.
