This Medico-Legal Essentials course will provide key skills, knowledge and technical information to allow participants safely to prepare and submit Medico-Legal reports in personal injury cases. This course is suitable for Doctors who are looking to improve or refresh their current Medico-Legal knowledge or for those who are interested in getting started in the Medico-Legal industry.
It is important to note that this course is not intended to cover Clinical Negligence matters; there is a separate course on that subject but the personal injury course does offer some guidance and will, naturally, deal with the common areas under the Rules.
The course covers a comprehensive range of relevant topics for Doctors undertaking Medico-Legal work, including:
How to write quality Medico-Legal reports (with the opportunity to review sample reports with the lawyers themselves that many of our previous delegates have found extremely useful)
Duties of the Expert
The roles of the various "players" (client, claims management company, claimant solicitor, insurer, defendant solicitor, barrister, judge, other witnesses)
Court room skills
Rules for giving evidence
Mistakes to avoid
You will receive a Course Pack including a number of useful documents and course materials.
