This one-day course offers the plaintiff lawyer and client, and clinician and representative the opportunity to develop an understanding of mediation in the medical setting, and skills in how to prepare a case and participate effectively in mediation. The course will be facilitated by Tony Allen, the most experienced medico-legal mediator in the UK, and experienced Conflict Dynamics' mediator trainers. It is well known that the South African healthcare industry is facing a crisis of rising claims against medical practitioners and service providers, including the Department of Health. Mediation is a process which could be used at almost any stage of a conflict or dispute to address the concerns raised by patients and to achieve better outcomes earlier and at less cost.
NOTE: This course will be registered with the HPCSA so that participants can earn CPD points by attending.
