The rapid introduction of innovative medical technologies, increased awareness of legal rights and obligations and rising healthcare costs have significantly impacted the delicate doctor-patient-healthcare provider relationship.
With the internet also offering easy access to an abundance of medical/healthcare information and diagnoses, the patient holds certain expectations of medical care and consultation which may or may not be met by the doctor/healthcare provider - one of the many reasons behind the rise in medical negligence claims today.
Managing these expectations, risks and patient-doctor communications have become a crucial and integral part of many healthcare provider’s risk management and professional liability.
The Medicolegal Conference 2015’s general theme is to highlight the importance of medical professional indemnity and better management of the relationship between doctors, patients and healthcare providers.
