We are committed to helping you avoid problems and provide the best care for your patients. We have a dedicated educational services department with a team of more than 100 people organising and delivering educational interventions to healthcare professionals worldwide.
Workshops – MPS runs a range of communication skills workshops which are free for members to attend as a benefit of membership. To date more than 4,000 doctors in Ireland and the UK have attended an MPS workshop.
E-learning platform – Prism is a free online learning resource available to MPS members. Prism provides access to a number of interactive case reports in core medicolegal and risk management areas.
Once you've completed a case report you will be able to download a certificate which indicates the suggested value of CPD learning.

Medicolegal advisory service
You can phone or email us for advice to help resolve the many dilemmas that can arise from everyday practice. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for urgent advice.
We can help you formulate a response to a complaint and assist and support you through to its resolution. We can work with you to look at why complaints arise and how to minimise the risks of recurrence.
Handling media attention
If you attract adverse publicity, we can issue press statements and act as spokesperson to the media to shield you as far as possible from having to deal directly with the press.
Counselling and support
We offer access to a 24/7 counselling service if you are suffering from stress and anxiety as a result of situations such as complaints, claims, or disciplinary or a Medical Council investigation. It is an independent service tailored to your requirements and delivered by fully trained, qualified and registered psychologists and counsellors. The service is entirely independent and confidential – MPS is not informed of the details of consultations – and accessing the service is via the relevant medicolegal case handler, who will be able to provide the service’s freephone number.
