Ethics and Law for Anaesthetists

Royal College of Anaesthetists
CPD Credits Approved: 
Places available

Medicolegal and ethical dilemmas in clinical practice are increasingly common and many doctors feel ill-equipped to manage them. Join us for a day of lectures and case-based discussions that will address some of the key principles of medical ethics and law, and also give you the opportunity to apply these principles to a range of common scenarios. Small group work will allow time for questions and debate.

This popular course has been running at the College as a one-day event for five years. It 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!'


Topics will include:

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