Medical Protection is pleased to be hosting our annual ethics event – Ethics For All – for doctors, dentists and healthcare professionals in October in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. We are also pleased to announce that we are adding a fourth location in 2017 and will be bringing Ethics For All to Port Elizabeth for the first time.

Ethics For All brings together highly respected local and international speakers from the healthcare profession and beyond to provide guidance to help you practise safely and ethically. The event provides an opportunity for members to examine ethical challenges and obtain CME ethics, human rights and medical law units for the ethical component of your professional development.

Dr Graham Howarth, Head of Medical Services, Africa states: “Set against the backdrop of increasing complaints and rising patient expectations, providing support and guidance to doctors and dentists about ethical issues fulfils a key educational need. It is important that doctors and healthcare professionals receive straightforward and effective advice about how to avoid adverse outcomes.

We know that issues surrounding ethics and professionalism can be challenging for healthcare professionals to navigate and, although we’re here for members when things go wrong, we very much want to help them get it right in the first place. It’s about preventing pain for healthcare professionals and their patients”.

Ethics for All will cover some key ethical issues including behavioural ethics in healthcare, which will focus on the importance, value and impact of ‘trust’ between the provider and patient, whilst considering the medicolegal and ethical consequences that stem from the loss of trust and ineffective communication.

We will also explore the complexities of breaking bad news to patients and families and how to manage expectations, improve patient satisfaction and improve healthcare quality.

The event is free of charge for Medical Protection members as a benefit of membership.

Don’t miss this opportunity to debate key medicolegal and ethical issues with your peers and hear from leading experts on ethics.
