The professional standard of care is not static but fluid. This course will explain what the standard of care is at a base level and how it is legally determined; discuss how it is and potentially will evolve in the face of new design challenges; support the development of best practices in conforming to same under specific circumstances; and provide an understanding of what constitutes related professional misconduct.
