You must be registered to participate!

Despite significant differences in personalities and emotional expression between healthcare professionals, physician and nursing witnesses are repeatedly dealt with in a universal manner when preparing for depositions in medical malpractice cases, resulting in ineffective, and often damaging, testimony. Amongst physicians, two primary personalities can be identified while nursing staff can similarly be broken down into distinct personalities. Individual healthcare personalities must be identified and uniquely addressed early on from both a cognitive and emotional perspective to avoid destructive testimony that will unnecessarily increase both the value and exposure of the case.
