Clinicians have both legal and professional obligations to their patients. This session looks first at the duty of care clinicians owe their patients as set out by various professional bodies. It then focuses on the legal requirements that the law imposes upon a clinician and what a patient must show if they wish to bring legal action in relation to adverse consequences of a treatment.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Show a professional duty of care, treating both patients and colleagues with respect
• Exercise patient confidentiality and recognise when exceptions can be made
• Describe the grounds on which a patient may succeed with a claim of negligence
