Description

Medico-legal actions against GPs are rising in frequency and, as part of our internal governance, MDDUS conduct ongoing analysis on member claims, complaints and GMC cases to understand the most common and serious risks to which GPs are exposed. Over three quarters of negligence claims against GPs arise from failed or delayed diagnosis, or failures arising from repeat prescribing systems.Over an interactive morning, delegates will learn more about why claims occur, what features of professional practice can assist in providing a robust defence if appropriate, and explore ways in which known risk can be mitigated. Anonymised case studies will be used to highlight risks and assist delegates in exploring how their own practice can be improved to reduce the risk of patient harm.In the afternoon, the focus will be on understanding recurrent and emerging areas of risk including: the interface with multidisciplinary teams; the evolving role of non-clinical staff; use of chaperones; and responding to online feedback.A portion of time will also be spent examining key areas of risk in confidentiality, disclosure of information to third parties and responsibilities in relation to breaches.A certificate detailing five hours of verifiable CPD will be provided to all delegates.FAQsHow can I contact the organiser with any questions?Please email risk@mddus.com if you need to know more before booking.
