Event Details

An education day for NSW Emergency Doctors from PGY3 to  FACEM Consultants including CMO's, GP VMO's working in Emergency departments and unaccredited emergency trainees trainees. 

This event will help you understand Root Cause Analysis investigations, how public health facilities respond to critical incidents, the role of the Medical Defence Organisations, how the Coroners court works, criminal medical negligence in the NSW Health context, what happens if you are sued as a public health employee and how the CEC is responding to the information from investigations of these incidents. 

Patient safety is at the centre of the care we provide. There are systems in place that are triggered following a critical incident and it highly likely, that if you work in acute patient care, you will be involved with one or many of these processes during your career. 

It imperitive that we understand how they work, what role we have within them and how to work with them. Root Cause analysis investigations, involvement of the medical board and involvement of the legal systems can be complex and highly stressful for all involved. 

This is a day of education, during which you can ask the experts in tihis field any questions you might have and hear from them how these systems work in reation to Emergency Medicine in NSW.
