Caps on Malpractice Actions Against Healthcare Providers

Should there be caps on malpractice actions against healthcare providers and why or why not?

If you believe that caps should be imposed, in what amount and in what manner do you believe they should be applied? If you do not believe that caps should be imposed, are you in favor of a catastrophic fund put into place to assist physicians faced with malpractice awards in excess of their insurance amounts, and why or why not?
