Presentation of the medical community’s legislative positions takes more than just being “right”. This workshop describes, and then provides a practical and interactive opportunity to practice the special skill sets needed to be effective in a legislative venue. Key legislative techniques will be introduced with interactive case studies and ineffective approaches will be discussed. Participants will then have an opportunity to work on a complex case study, assisted by professional lobbyists and elected legislators.
