Course Overview

This module was produced from the RDN New Rural GP Orientation workshop in February 2015. Dr Ros Bullock presents on the key medico-legal issues faced by GPs in rural general practice.

At the end of this case-based session you will have a greater understanding of:

  • How to limit risk and practise wisely.
  • Who is sued and why.
  • The legal process of a patient complaint.

On completion, you will have the option to earn CPD points for this topic by undertaking an assessment activity.
