PATIENT SAFETY: HOW MIGHT THE LAW HELP? In 1999, the Institute of Medicine in its report, To Err Is Human made it clear that America faces a serious medical error problem, one that results in hundreds of thousands of deaths and injuries each year. Recent evidence indicates that the volume of iatrogenic injury has not been substantially reduced. At the same time, the number and impact of medical malpractice actions has been steadily shrinking. It seems clear that the answer to the medical error problem will not be found in traditional tort litigation. The 24th Annual Clifford Symposium is intended to explore alternative legal strategies that might encourage greater safety. The symposium speakers will consider a range of interventions that might help to address the error problem. These will include legal steps to encourage use of artificial intelligence and big data to improve safety, alteration of policies regarding medical devices and dissemination of health-related information to consumers, more vigorous surveillance of the delivery of medical care, reduction of incentives for unnecessary treatment, encouragement of insurers' promotion of greater safety among their medical industry clients, reform of the structure of the delivery of healthcare and a number of others. DePaul University College of Law is an accredited CLE provider. This event is a two day event and has been approved up to 8.0 general CLE credit hours. Day 2- 4.0 general CLE credits

How can we shift the consumer-focused, fast fashion garment industry towards more humane and ethical practices? Or through the lens of the Catholic corporal works of mercy, how can we "clothe the naked" without exploiting the vulnerable? This speaker panel, part of DePaul's larger Fashion Revolution event*, features three individuals who are doing just that through their inspiring work in Nepal, the Dominican Republic, and Guatemala: Nasreen Sheikh-Former child laborer in Nepal, Nasreen escaped at age 12 and is now an anti-sweatshop activist, as well as founder/ executive director of Local Women's Handicrafts, a fair trade & handicraft collective in Kathmandu, Nepal.Donnie Hodge-CEO & president of Alta Gracia, a collegiate apparel company in the Dominican Republic, Donnie provides local workers a way out of poverty through good working conditions and a living wage.Fr. Andrew O'Connor-Priest/pastor & artist/designer, Fr. Andrew founded Social FabricTM, a sustainable company that works directly with Mayan cotton producers & weavers in Guatemala to produce the clothing line, Goods of Conscience.This speaker panel is the fifth event in the "Corporal Works of Mercy" series presented by the Center for World Catholicism & Intercultural Theology (CWCIT). In the Catholic tradition, "clothing the naked" is one of the 7 corporal works of mercy found in the teachings of Jesus which respond to the basic physical needs of humanity as we journey together through this life. *Fashion Revolution at DePaul In addition to this speaker panel, the larger Fashion Revolution event will also feature a Fashion Revolution Fair (fair trade apparel vendors, a clothing swap, Fix It Friday, and more)Fashion Show (sustainable designs & accessories modeled by DePaul students).The event is organized by DePaul's Office of Mission & Ministry in collaboration with Chicago Fair Trade and the following DePaul organizations: CWCIT, Fair Trade Committee, Alta Gracia Campaign, CWCIT, Net Impact, and United Students Against Sweatshops. Fashion Revolution Week occurs every April all over the world to commemorate the 2013 Rana factory collapse in Bangladesh that killed over 1,000 people due to gross negligence of safe working conditions. ________________________________________________________________ For more info on DePaul's Fashion Revolution event, click here. ________________________________________________________________ About the Photo From the Goods of Conscience website, showing the Algodones Maya people of Guatemala About the Corporal Works of Mercy The 7 corporal works of mercy give us a model for how we should treat all others, as if they were Christ in disguise: ~ Feed the hungry. ~ Give drink to the thirsty. ~ Welcome the stranger (shelter the homeless). ~ Clothe the naked. ~ Visit the sick & imprisoned (ransom the captive). ~ Bury the dead. ~ Give alms to the poor.
