Generally, the medicolegal knowledge of clinicians and healthcare professionals is limited. It is important that all medical professionals understand current and correct medicolegal processes to mitigate complications, lawsuits or severe legal ramifications, and enhance patient care.
This medicolegal live stream will enable you to understand consent, assist you to decrease complaints and litigation, explain the ‘second victim’ concept, and examine the medicolegal aspects of everyday medicine and the processes.

Experts will show you how to write a medicolegal report and provide knowledge as to how to become an expert witness.
According to the Medical Defence Union (MDU) in 2020, GP's in the UK can expect to be sued once every 10 years, and according to Statista, during the 2019/2020 year, there were over 11,600 clinical related negligence claims and over 3,700 non-clinical claims reported to NHS England.
This event will equip you with knowledge of the General Medical Council (GMC) process and expectation in this field and will provide first-hand information on current and high-profile cases that outline how to prevent litigation in the first instance.

- How to write a medicolegal report and understand what it takes to be an expert witness
- What to do when things go wrong?
