Risk Management Workshop Panelists

Workshop Title:

The Seniors Edition

This year's edition of the Risk Management session will focus on our senior patients, identifying the challenges and added clinical risks of managing this ever growing demographic within our community.

The session will be presented in a part lecture and part actual clinical case workshop mode offering delegates the opportunity to participate and learn from legal, risk and clinical experts as well as from each other. Recognising how to extract appropriate information from our more senior patients, tailoring an appropriate examination and ensuring that they understand our intentions in relation to consent, treatment and follow-up issues will be central to our discussion along with side issues such as recognising how aged patient's view our ads and websites.

Much Q&A and case discussion throughout the session.
