The Medicine: Has COVID changed the doctor-patient relationship forever? [Video recording]

12 June 2020

Dr Pallavi Bradshaw, Medicolegal Lead, Risk Prevention at Medical Protection Society, highlights how disruption caused by COVID could affect medicolegal risk and what steps could be taken to reduce this. Increases awareness that there remain many unresolved legal and ethical issues which society must grapple with in the aftermath of the crisis. 

Description from Risk Business: How the doctor-patient relationship is affected by the practice of medicine, the ethics and the law, all of which have been disrupted by COVID-19. Jeopardising this sacrosanct relationship may result in an increased medicolegal risk and an alteration in what we judge as ethically and legally acceptable.
