We know there’s never been a more challenging time to practise and deliver outstanding patient care than now.

In such rapidly changing times, we have a host of evolving medicolegal and ethical issues to contend with every day. We looked at these and helped you make sense of them at our Ethics For All 2021 conferences.

Our speakers addressed the latest issues impacting on your professional life to give you a better understanding of your ethical obligations and offer invaluable advice around best practice.

By being better prepared, you can reduce your risk of a complaint or claim.

Both virtual events were open to all Medical Protection members and non-members. They’re just one of the ways we support you on a day- to- day basis.
