Probity for doctors

Taking place on Wednesday, 26 June between 9.30am and 12.30pm, this three hour interactive Zoom course addresses issues surrounding probity and ethics in everyday working practice

The public trust in the profession relies on doctors to be honest and transparent in both professional and personal lives. Doctors need to be aware of the implications on them to behave honestly and ethically and understand what steps to take to comply with these standards in difficult situations. Topics will include:

  • The meaning of probity and levels of professionalism expected of doctors
  • Patient safety issues arising from a breach of probity
  • Regulatory guidance and implications when probity has been breached
  • Learning from mistakes and reflective practice

Doctors will also get the opportunity to explore case examples highlighting common scenarios that could lead to probity issues for doctors.

This course is led by MDDUS risk adviser, Kay Louise Grant.

This course has been accredited by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK for 3 CPD credits.

Course Fee:

MDDUS medical member: £70
