about this event

Note that this event was scheduled to take place on Thursday 13 July 2017 but has been rescheduled to Thursday 21 September 2017.


The ability to prepare a statement or report that complies with professional best practice legal principles and is fit for purpose is a required skill of all healthcare professionals. Report writing can be used both internally and externally and the poor preparation can seriously distort the true facts of an incident, leading to further complications especially in legal matters.  This course is designed to ensure that this vital skill is delivered and performed to the highest quality.

Learning objectives

Delivered by former healthcare professionals who have retrained in the legal profession, this course will ensure delegates learn how to:
  • Recognise points that need to be reported
  • Comply with local guidelines
  • Ensure areas for improvement are actioned affectively
  • Present reports coherently
  • Review patient record information
  • Differentiate between fact and fiction
