All doctors should be familiar with a range of ethical issues that commonly arise in medical practice especially with medico-legal and ethical matters becoming ever more prominent.

This event will be an eye opener, emphasising how important it is to communicate with patients and colleagues and the manner in which it should be done.

The application of medical law and ethics relevant to anaesthetists and intensivists will be addressed at this event through lectures, case-based discussions, scenarios and group work.

The topics to be covered have been mapped to the RCoA CPD Matrix and also the GMC Good Medical Practice domains for the purposes of fulfilling requirements for revalidation and CCT.
