Beyond Negligence

Tort reform in recent years has reduced the frequency of claims from negligent acts or omissions (medical negligence). Simultaneously, there has been increased regulation of practitioners with the “national law”. This has resulted in the number of complaints and investigations against practitioners increasing. This module highlights the rising risk of complaint and investigation, the potential consequences and how members can best manage this increased risk.
