MedicoLegal Course

Building on the highly successful Medicolegal sessions at the 2023 College Congress, on Wednesday 6 December 2023 Mr Amar Alwitry will be hosting an all-day symposium at the College with a highly respected and knowledgeable faculty. Litigation is ever increasing and practicing clinicians need to understand modern standards and concepts around consent and other aspects of the Medicolegal playing field. There will also be talks on how we learn from litigation and clinical errors, how to protect yourself from litigation and how to become/the role of a medical expert. The afternoon will be dedicated to a wholly interactive “You’re the Judge” session including break out rooms where delegates will be asked to put forward case opinions as Defendants or Claimants and then put their arguments to the other side. The symposium is suitable for Ophthalmologists of all levels and experience: trainees, SAS doctors and consultants.
