Orthopaedic Surgeons in the UK will be only too aware of the rising risk of complaints and litigation.book-now-pink

International research indicates that doctors can reduce their exposure to these risks, improve health outcomes and increase patient satisfaction, by improving communication skills and better management of patient expectations.

To assist doctors in reducing their exposure to these risks, Medical Protection has developed a one-day Risk Management Masterclass. Each interactive and practical session is tailored to the needs of your specialty. The programme aims to enhance delegates’ skills in achieving more effective consultations.

What does it involve?

A one-day interactive and practical session tailored to the needs of your specialty.

The morning session comprises a series of lectures, reflections and activities on the importance and benefits of good communication in developing a trusting relationship with patients, eliciting expectations and arriving at decisions with patients. You will also examine the importance of engaging patients after an actual or perceived adverse outcome and learn a model for undertaking this conversation.

In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to practice the skills learnt by working with actor-simulated patients on scenarios of both pre and post-treatment
