Call for Abstracts for 2014 Indiana Meeting

We are now accepting abstract submissions for the Indiana Chapter Abstract/Poster competition. This year we will be including fellows in training and 4th year chief residents in the competition.

In addition to the categories of Clinical Vignette, Research, and Patient Safety/QI, we will be adding the category of High-Value, Cost-Conscious Care. ACP's High Value Care (HVC) initiative is a broad program that connects two important priorities for the College:

Helping physicians to provide the best possible care to their patients;
Simultaneously reducing unnecessary costs to the healthcare system.

Decision in the Plank case

The Indiana Supreme Court issued its opinion in the Plank case on 1/15/13. The court ruled that, by failing to raise the constitutionality issue of the med mal statute until eight days after the jury had returned its verdict, Plank had forfeited the opportunity to conduct an evidentiary hearing on the statute’s constitutionality. Therefore the Plank case is over. However, the Court indicated in its opinion that the constitutionality of the statute might be challenged if raised appropriately at an earlier time in a case, assuming the plaintiff could produce evidence showing why changes over the past 30 years have caused the statute to become unconstitutional. Therefore, the issue will likely come up again in the future.
