Live webinar through Microsoft Teams

Join BN’s national health team as they scan the country to provide an analysis of the key developments in the health law space over the past 12 months.

This lunchtime webinar will review the past year and unpack relevant case law, legislation, disciplinary decisions, and inquests in an informal and engaging discussion.

In the session, our health law experts will look at the matters before our courts and tribunals in 2022 to consider what happens when:

  • The de facto partner of a patient on life support seeks an order permitting removal and storage of reproductive tissue.
  • A 10 month old baby unexpectedly dies at a tertiary hospital after an elective surgical procedure.
  • Patients of a GP suffer significant complications after he performs cosmetic surgeries in his clinic.
  • A nurse steals scheduled medications from the aged care facility in which she works, removing the memory card from the medication room surveillance camera.

Discussion will also cover recent decisions involving medicolegal assessments of plaintiffs, limitation applications and contesting immediate action by the Medical Board.

Relevant to medical and legal practitioners, claims managers, employers, and anyone who works in or alongside the health industry, this webinar provides a wrap up of the key developments in health law in Australia in 2022.
