I was to chair an hour-long session on "Medicolegal Dermatopathology" for the International Society of Dermatopathology at their meeting in New Orleans, LA.  Unfortunately, I could not attend the meeting because of the historic winter storm that resulted in cancelled flights from St. Louis to New Orleans.

 
This issue for this session was judgment of negligence with this specific question to dermatopathologists on the panel who serve as expert witnesses, as follows:
 
"When you review a case evaluating for the possibility of medical negligence by a dermatopathologist, how do you determine whether negligence has occurred?  What standard do you employ for this, how did you come to regard it as the standard, and how easy is it for you to apply the standard you use?"
