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 2023 to consider:

  • is a surgeon liable for complications of bariatric surgery where the patient has known long term alcohol abuse and liver issues?
  • is a hysterectomy in the best interests of a 31 year old woman with a disability?
  • can you really be sent to jail for pretending to be a nurse?
  • how did a surgeon discover that a defamatory online review under a false name was in fact written by his former medical student?

Discussion will also cover recent decisions involving capacity, consent and expert evidence.

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 2023.
