Description

Medical practitioners hold a high level of clinical independence resulting from highly specialised knowledge and skills on which their patients, the general public, the health care system and Australian judicial system rely upon.

Expert medical evidence is often critical to the administration of justice in legal proceedings involving health and medical matters. A medical practitioner may be called as a medical witness to give evidence in court, at a tribunal, or as part of an alternative dispute resolution process. Expert evidence provided by doctors can assist the courts or alternative dispute resolution process in making informed, fair decisions.

This module aims to help you understand the AMA Ethical Guidelines for Doctors Acting as Medical Witnesses 2011. Revised 2016 should you be called upon as the treating doctor or an independent expert witness.
