Medical law course agenda 2020
6 CPD credits*
As you are aware the UK government has indicated that everyone in the UK should avoid non-essential travel and contact and we are following this advice. After careful consideration we have decided to cancel all face to face courses until the end of July. When the situation changes we will update our website.
Understanding the key aspects of medical law and its implications for your clinical practice is essential to the safe care of patients. In this course you will explore the legal aspects of consent, confidentiality, mental capacity, and issues relating to the treatment of children and young people using case scenarios.
Topics covered include:
This course complements the Medical ethics course. They are on consecutive days to make it easier for you to attend both courses if you would like to.
*This course has been approved by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK for 6 category 1 (external) CPD credits.
