I have made over 300 presentations at academic and professional conferences as well as hospital grand rounds and related events across the United States, in Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
These include invited presentations at leading law schools and medical schools, such as: Yale, Harvard, Stanford, UCLA, NYU, Dartmouth, University of Pennsylvania, University of Minnesota, and Ohio State. These also include invited presentations to leading healthcare provider organizations such as Kaiser, HCA, and Cedars-Sinai. The complete list and select videos are here.
Most of these presentations earned CME, CLE, CEU, and/or other professional development credits. I would be delighted to participate in your event too.
Topics & Issues
I regularly speak on a range of topics in medical law and bioethics. But my active projects pertain to the following topics.
CONSENT & PATIENT RIGHTS
Patient decision aids (shared decision making)
Informed consent (clinical)
Surrogate decision making
END OF LIFE
Hastening death via VSED
Hastening death via MAID
The following ranges and guidelines are based on averaging invitations and engagements from the past 24 months.
Local Events in Minneapolis/St. Paul $750
Regional Events in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota
Honoraria for other recent events and programs that involved more planning and/or more presentations and meetings have ranged to $5000. For example, a half-day "course" requires substantially more preparation than a one-hour keynote presentation.
Discounts & Waivers
The above schedule represents recent practice among hospitals, universities, and professional associations. But I regularly discount or waive honoraria for smaller organizations, especially those located in warm places in winter months.
In addition to providing an honorarium, it is expected that basic coach travel, meals, and lodging will be reimbursed.
In planning and preparing for a presentation, it is important to know:
1. The purpose of the event. Is it to inform? To persuade? Or to build good will? What are the CME/CLE/CEU objectives?
2. Who is the audience? What is the size? What disciplines are represented? Is participation captive or optional? Are they paying? What are their goals?
3. What are the logistics? What is the event date? Time? Duration? Location? Will there be audience polling? Are there pre- and post-presentation events?
