75207 - Avant webinar: Predicting medico-legal risk - Latest research and its application to practice

  • : Online

 

For many doctors who are sued or who receive a complaint against them, the event seems random. At the population level, however, there are patterns and it is feasible to predict which doctors are at high risk of incurring more complaints in the near future. Join Avant in this webinar which examines the latest research on predicting medico-legal risk

Relevance to General Practice

To many doctors who are sued or complained against, the event seems random. At the population level, however, there are patterns. Previous studies have compared doctors who experienced multiple malpractice claims, complaints, and disciplinary actions with doctors who experienced few or none, and identified differences in the sex, age and specialty profile of the two groups. Such research helps to explain medico-legal risk retrospectively, but does not provide practical guidance for identifying risks prospectively. 

Learning outcomes
  • Describe the distribution of formal patient complaints across Australia’s medical workforce
  • Identify characteristics of doctors at high risk of incurring recurrent complaints
  • Identify quality improvement interventions to help reduce adverse events and patient dissatisfaction in medical practice
