MDDUS Risk Bites podcasts now online

MDDUS Risk Management is pleased to announce the launch of their new Risk Bites podcast series.

The first two episodes are now available on the MDDUS website and accessible to all web users on the Podcasts page, in the Risk Management eLearning centre.

Hosted by Jamie Smith, the podcasts focus on a fictitious 51-year-old patient, Mrs Roberts, who is diagnosed with breast cancer by her GP.

MDDUS advisers consider the scenario in two very different practice settings. Mrs Roberts presents with the same complaints across a very similar timeline in the Grey practice and in the Rose practice.

In both practices Mrs Roberts' case has the same clinical outcome but, as we will discover across the series, each find themselves in very different positions when they must respond to the patient’s diagnosis as it progresses from an adverse incident, to an NHS complaint, a claim of negligence and lastly a referral to the General Medical Council.

Follow the discussion by downloading the patient's medical records to see the different clinical notes at both the Grey practice and the Rose practice.

Throughout the series, the podcasts will explore and discuss a wide range of key risk areas for general practice.
