Medicolegal and ethical dilemmas in clinical practice are increasingly common and many doctors feel ill-equipped to manage them. Join us for a day of lectures and case-based discussions that will address some of the key principles of medical ethics and law, and also give you the opportunity to apply these principles to a range of common scenarios. Small group work will allow time for questions and debate.
This popular course has been running at the College as a one-day event for five years. It forms part of a three-year programme that rotates annually in response to feedback and in order to address a greater range of topics.
Feedback from last year’s event:
‘Excellent, informative and challenging’
‘Really interesting and informative day’
‘I have been recommending this course all morning to my colleagues!’
Topics will include:
- Legal implications of clinical guidelines
- Ethico-legal issues in obstetrics
- Are the current policies for funding surgery ethically justifiable?
