Biography

Mark Raven-Jackson is a civil litigator with a background in the area of health care law and involved in a broad spectrum of health care related issues, including; medical malpractice litigation, medical staff administration advising on processes under the Medical Staff bylaws, public health prosecutions and regulatory enforcement, fatality inquiries, Coroner's requests, public inquiries, quality assurance advising, and policy review. Mark acts on behalf of many health care clients including medical staff, health regions, active treatment hospitals, long term care facilities, and other health care providers. Mark has represented the interests of health care clients in many legal forums; including, Judicial Dispute Resolution, the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench, the Alberta Court of Appeal, the Ontario Superior Court, the Supreme Court of the Northwest Territories, the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, and the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal.

Mark closely monitors health care reform developments, medical malpractice case law and health care legislation on a provincial and federal level, offering advice and guidance to clients that are stakeholders in these developments. Mark also provides clinical policy and practice opinions to health care clients to assist with operational issues that arise in the context of health care.

Mark has worked closely with the LPIP and its subscribers for almost 15 years. In that time Mark has successfully defended subscribers in 4 lengthy and complex medical malpractice trials and at the Court of Appeal. Two of these trials involved allegations of malpractice resulting in catastrophic birth injuries. In his capacity as LPIP Counsel Mark provides in-services to subscribers, lecturing on risk management using practical examples from actual LPIP matters.

Mark recently acted on behalf of the largest health authority in Canada, Intervener in the Preferential Access to Health Services judicial inquiry. This was the first Public Inquiry in Alberta in three decades, and the first judicial inquiry ever held under the Health Quality Council of Alberta Act. The Inquiry conducted extensive pre-hearing investigation, and heard evidence and submissions from approximately 70 witnesses over a 6 month period.

Mark assisted in seeking and acquiring Intervener status on behalf of the client. He provided legal counsel for over 30 witnesses that have testified at the inquiry, he investigated the source of evidence presented to the Inquiry; and made written and oral submissions on behalf of client. An Inquiry Report was published and tabled in Alberta Legislature August 2013.
