Event description

Description

FREE LAW AND ETHICS WORKSHOP (for trainees)

Clinical Negligence

Trainees have pointed out that although they often studied and discussed ethical and legal issues as students, they do not get much opportunity to discuss again when these issues are brought into focus during clinical practice as doctors. In response to popular demand, we are running 4 sessions on law and ethics. Three of the sessions are aimed at trainees of all grades, and one is for consultant supervisors and educational faculty.

The sessions will be run by Dr Daniel Sokol. He is a barrister specialising in medical law at 12 King’s Bench Walk Chambers, London, and a leading medical ethicist. He is a columnist for the British Medical Journal (‘Ethics Man’) and the author of 3 books on medical ethics and law. He has sat on various committees, including those of the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Justice, and the Royal College of Surgeons. He has conducted advisory work, training, conference moderation, and after-dinner speaking for leading companies and charities, and lectures in the UK and internationally on medical ethics and law.

We have designed the sessions to all cover a ‘core’ of the three areas of duty: candour, consent, and truth telling. Each session will also cover another specific area as detailed below. The sessions are designed that trainees will only attend one, as there is repeated material.

THE CORE

1. Truth-telling - Should clinicians always tell patients the truth or are there cases when benignly intended deception is morally and legally acceptable? This session will explore a fascinating, practical and age-old problem in medicine.
2. Duty of candour - This session will explore the fundamentals of this relatively new and ill-understood legal duty, translating the obscure drafting of the statute into plain language.
3. Consent - This session is a modified lecture given to solicitors interested in suing clinicians for lack of consent! It will cover the landmark case of Montgomery and other keys legal cases on consent.

ADDITIONAL AREA - Clinical Negligence

This session will provide an introduction to the elements of a clinical negligence action, from establishing a duty of care to proving loss and damage.



DEPOSIT FEE: £30.00 will be refunded upon attendance of the event. Refunds for cancellations will only be processed up to 1 week before the event takes place. If a cancellation takes place within the period of 1 week before the event, the £30.00 deposit fee will not be refunded.
