GP risk training day - Glasgow

GPs can learn more about why claims occur, focusing on key areas such as complaints handling, patient communication, chaperones and social media.

MDDUS conduct ongoing analysis on member claims, complaints and GMC cases to understand the most common and serious risks to which GPs - and therefore patients - are exposed.

Over three quarters of negligence claims against GPs arise from failed or delayed diagnosis/access to treatment, or failures arising from repeat prescribing systems.

Over an interactive day delegates will learn about why claims and other medico-legal actions arise against GPs and which features of professional practice can assist in providing a robust defence if appropriate. Anonymised case studies and small group discussion will be used to explore medico-legal risks and how to mitigate those which are present in your own practice.

Time will also be devoted to understanding emerging areas of risk including: the impact of working in evolving multidisciplinary teams; delegation to non-clinical staff; and managing online records.

The training day is open to both MDDUS members and non-members and is aimed at GPs.
