MEDICO-LEGAL ESSENTIALS COURSE

(Personal Injury)

COURSE INTRODUCTION

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)
  • Questioning techniques
  • 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.
