This Conference is now Closed

“When a concern arises about a doctor’s practice it presents a three-fold opportunity to protect patients, support professional behaviours by the doctor and improve quality in the organisation. These are achieved through reflection and learning by all involved in an open, fair and effective manner. To realise all three is a challenge requiring skill, wisdom and leadership”

“Every doctor has a professional duty to maintain their fitness to practise. This includes the duty to be proactive about raising a concern about their practice, to acknowledge a concern if one is raised and to engage constructively with steps to address it.”

“When a potential concern arises the immediate response sets the direction for that which follows. Engagement of the doctor as a professional participant is a key factor for successful resolution within local processes. Another is to distinguish common variation of practice from that which veers significantly from accepted standards and respond accordingly.”
