Risk management: Good practice in record keeping for doctors

Taking place on Wednesday, 15 March 2023 between 9.00am and 3.30pm, this interactive course focuses on the key medico-legal requirements and frameworks associated with good record keeping

This five hour interactive course comprises a mixture of content delivery and self-directed learning/case discussion in breakout groups. The focus throughout is on the key medico-legal requirements and frameworks associated with good record keeping. Topics will include:

  • GMC guidance in relation to record keeping, along with the importance of documenting key aspects of the consent process and documentation associated with use of chaperones.
  • How to ensure medical records comply with data protection legislation and requirements.
  • The common pitfalls associated new technology/ways of working and the impact on records will also be explored. 

Specifically arising from the outcomes of the Paterson Inquiry we will look at how written communication with patients can be effected which outlines their condition and treatment, in simple language.

This course is led by MDDUS risk advisers, Kay Grant and Alan Frame.

This course has been accredited by the Royal College of physicians for 5 CPD credits.
