  • The impact of missed and delayed diagnosis from the primary care setting to the post-operative setting
  • ¬†Interpretation: an analysis of clinical issues and legal updates in the context of diagnosis in histopathology and radiology
  • ¬†Incorrect surgery: never events from wrong site surgery to incorrect patients. Why is it still occurring?
  • Identification of problem surgeons: impact on regulation and non-delegable duties in the wake of the Paterson litigation
  • Vaginal mesh litigation. Consent issues and surgical options for the patients

Many other key medico-legal topics will also be covered at such an important time for clinical negligence practitioners.

As well as providing you with a top quality, thought provoking, learning and networking experience, the success of the conference helps AvMA to maintain its position as an essential force in promoting patient safety and justice.
