Understanding and learning all of legal jargon was a big part of this course. I have heard many of these terms before but now I feel as though I can effectively apply them to healthcare. 

I learned the importance of legal involvement within the healthcare system. The legal aspect of not only regarding patient care but facility standards and employee rights were intriguing. I must say that the most pertinent information I learned was the details of the Affordable Care Act. I have gained more understanding of the issues regarding the ACA and applying them to my field of work is a bit easier. I remain steadfast about my opinions of the ACA and I am a firm believer that it will take more time and constant revisions in order for the ACA to work effectively. 

I have no unanswered questions regarding the course material. Everything was straightforward and easy to apply what I have learned to the case studies and assignments. I enjoyed reading the case studies and found it easy to follow along and understand. Whenever I had a question it was always answered thoroughly. 

Good Luck everyone! blush with light skin tone emoticon

I think the most surprising information that I learned in this term was about the Bruesewitz v Wyeth case.  There were many interesting points that were made in the case. I think the most practical information I learned this term was the liability of hospitals. utilize this information in my professional field by always remember the liabilities of the place I work. There are no questions that I feel were unanswered in the course material.
