CPD Credits Anticipated:

All doctors should be familiar with a range of ethical issues that commonly arise in medical practice as medico-legal and ethical matters become ever more prominent. Join us for an eye-opening day of lectures and case-based discussions to learn how to communicate with patients and colleagues in this context.


This popular course has been running at the College as a one-day event for five years, and forms part of a three-year programme that rotates annually in response to feedback, and in order to address a greater range of topics.


Feedback from last year's event:

'Excellent, informative and challenging'

'Really interesting and informative day'

'I have been recommending this course all morning to my colleagues!'


Anticipated topics:

  • Whistleblowing
  • Legal implications of clinical guidelines
  • Ethico-legal issues in obstetrics
  • Regulation
  • Are the current policies for funding surgery ethically justifiable?
