Hospital and industry education support

Supporting education in the field

MIPS takes an active role in helping practitioners better manage their day-to-day working life, helping to avoid adverse outcomes to a patient or, in the event they occur, help mitigate those outcomes. We do this by working with teaching hospitals and education providers to complement their healthcare education programs.

Healthcare practitioners face significant risk of complaints, legal actions and investigations. By drawing on our own claims experience we present content on how to best respond to healthcare obligations, challenges and emerging trends.

Frameworks and guides

We have developed an extensive range of clinico-legal content and resources taking into account key frameworks, standards and regulations, for example

  • Codes of Conduct for healthcare practitioners
  • Australian common law legislation and regulatory standards, principles and guidelines
  • Healthcare College or association guidelines and standards.

Learning objectives

When developing content our initial focus is to ensure we have a clearly defined set of learning objectives that outline the key purpose of the learning efforts. This helps guide us on the structure and activities to undertake as well as provide basis for post review and assessment for ongoing improvement. This approach has assisted in obtaining accreditation from a number of colleges including ACCRM and RACGP.

Topics covered

The following provides some recent topics we have delivered to hospitals and other healthcare associations

  • Just tell the truth - how to be a witness
  • An introduction to mandatory reporting
  • Colleagues in difficulty
  • Your wellbeing, career and patient safety

We have also tailored workshop content for stakeholders that better respond to specific needs and concerns. It is critical that it is driven by the stakeholders learning objectives.

Our presenters

We have a panel of presenters from a variety of specialities as this allows us to select the best presenter to fit your individual requirement / topic.

Our presenters will provide education that supplements your program; they will not promote MIPS membership.
