OBA Program on Professional Regulation during COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the regulation of health professionals in Ontario. On October 7, 2020 the OBA’s Health Law Section hosted a webinar where we heard from both the regulators and the defence counsels’ perspectives. Health lawyer Carina Lentsch, along with Robert Barbiero of Torkin Manes LLP, moderated the panel discussion with Emily Graham, counsel with The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), Colin Johnston, counsel at Lenczner Slaght, Kristopher Librera, investigator at the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO), and Lindsay Kantor, a partner at Torkin Manes LLP.
