Practice and patient use of technology in practice

Taking place on Thursday, 18 July between 1.00pm and 4.00pm, this interactive, case-based course is designed for PMs, GPs and other leads in the primary care setting

Content is based on advice calls and cases related to practice and patient use of technology, and the regulatory, legal, scope and process risks associated with a range of scenarios such as the following will be explored.

  • Patient request for the practice to prescribe on the basis of home testing
  • Carer requests for online access to patient records
  • Patient recording of consultations and meetings
  • Patients emailing in photographs for diagnosis
  • Practice set up of virtual patient group-based clinics
  • Practice use of mobiles and messaging systems for patient care
  • Practice remote monitoring of patient conditions and chronic diseases

Via a mix of case presentation and small group discussion, ways in which these risks can be prepared for and mitigated will be identified.

This course is led by Liz Price, Head of Training, CPD and Risk Advisory Services and Laura Anne McMahon, Medical Practice Adviser at MDDUS.

Upon completion, a certificate detailing 3 hours of verifiable CPD will be provided by MDDUS to all attendees.
