Supporting education programs in hospitals

MIPS provides accredited risk education that complements healthcare education programs


We draw on our claims experience and work with key education stakeholders to deliver custom education that complements their requirements.

Our education program is designed to minimise the risk of an adverse or unexpected outcome to patients, or in the event they do occur, assist with a defence and help mitigate adverse impacts. This in turn should minimise hospital costs and time required to manage incidents, complaints, claims and investigations.

MIPS encourages good, safe and honourable healthcare practice as part of its Constitution. Consistent with our philosophy, we are proud of the part we play as a not-forprofit in the industry, educating healthcare practitioners, supporting key education providers and ultimately improving the provision of healthcare to the public.

Learning objectives

From basic principles to emerging trends, our main focus is to impart the knowledge and skills that meet key learning objectives. By drawing from member experiences and our strong understanding of clinico-legal principles, we develop education that is both theoretical and practical. Where appropriate we align to key frameworks, standards and regulations including:

  • Australian Curriculum Framework for Junior Doctors, for example:
    • Clinical Management (informed consent, risk and prevention)
    • Communication (records, breaking bad news, open disclosure, complaints, team dynamics)
    • Professionalism (professional standards, medicine and the law)
  • Codes of Conduct for healthcare practitioners (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency)
  • College or association healthcare guidelines and standards
  • Australian clinico-legal principles and common law legislation.
A Certificate of Attendance is provided to participants to contribute towards their continuing professional development (CPD) requirements.
