What are masterclasses?


For specialist disciplines

Earn 6 hours CPD

These full-day doctor-led risk management masterclasses feature an engaging and powerful programme. With sessions covering content from our popular workshops, “Mastering your risk”, “Mastering adverse outcomes” and “Mastering consent and shared decision making” to help reduce your risk before and after a complaint, and communicate more effectively. You also earn 6 hours of CPD.

Expect a mix of short presentations, opportunities for valuable peer-to-peer discussions, and personal reflection.

Peer learning occurs through reflective exercises, sharing experience and knowledge, along with the invaluable opportunity to get involved and participate with skilled actors putting your learning into practice in a safe environment.

You can attend a masterclass in person and learn alongside other experts in your specialty at carefully chosen venues nationwide.

Available in our current series

Your frequently asked questions

  • Can I just turn up to attend a masterclass on the day?
    25 August 2022

    All masterclass places are limited and it’s not possible for the masterclass presenters to cater for members who do not book a place in advance.

  • I can't attend a masterclass. Can you send me the course materials instead or make them available online?
    25 August 2022

    The course materials are only an addition to the masterclass and not a replacement for it. They don’t contain the videos, exercises or speaker’s notes that are vital parts of the masterclass. This means the course materials are only for those who attend and can’t be sent out or made available online.

  • I can't get to the venue until after the masterclass has started. Can I still have my CPD points?
    25 August 2022

    If you believe that you’re going to be late, we’d recommend that you register on another date. The introduction to each session is important for the messages later. Most colleges require proof from us that you’ve attended the complete masterclass and may take into consideration any discrepancies between attendance-register records and time claimed.

  • Do you reimburse travel expenses?
    25 August 2022

    We don’t, because we believe that most members would agree that the reimbursement of other members’ travel expenses isn’t a good way to use their funds.
