Reduce the risk of a medical negligence claim

Medical negligence happens when treatment falls below an acceptable standard. Clinicians have a ‘duty of care’ to exercise reasonable care, skill and judgement when examining, diagnosing, treating and advising their patients. If they breach that duty, they may be liable for any harm caused. Principal and head of Maurice Blackburn’s Victorian medical negligence department, Dimitra Dubrow will use recent case studies to discuss risk management for physiotherapists in this eTalk.
