Practising Under Adversity Workshop

  • : Online

The personal effect on health practitioners who are involved in civil litigation or who are investigated by AHPRA, Medicare, Drugs & Poisons authorities, their training provider or hospital can be immense and life changing.

Feelings of anger, denial,  regret and  loss of self worth  are just some of the common ramifications.

There is increasing  research regarding  these widely recognised  consequences and an increasing wealth of practical advice on how to manage these often difficult times.

The workshop will discuss some of the frequent professional and personal consequences that practitioners experience at such times and the mitigating strategies that  can be adopted to minimise adverse impact.

In addition it will become clear  how MIPS can advise, assist, support and represent you as your medical defence organisation.
