There has been a lot going on in the world of “Risk Management” at MIGA and we are thrilled to again be planning activities for the 2021/2022 year that will mean we can meet face to face as well as the wide range of initiatives available on-line. We know that over the last year many of you have missed our face-to-face activities (postponed due to COVID-19) and the opportunity they provide to meet and network with colleagues.

As you are aware, we have been implementing a new insurance system which means that things will be a little different.

When it comes to accessing education activities these things stay the same:

  • You will still find the log in button at the top of our webpage.
  • The location of REO is unchanged (if you have it as a favourite)
  • You can contact us anytime if you need help.

However, these things have changed slightly:

  • When you log in now, your username has changed
  • Log in instructions have been updated in REO to help you log in
  • You can no longer access the ‘old’ client area to check the Risk Management Points you have earned
  • If you need to check your Points or look at past completed activities please log into REO where you can now find all of that information.

A quick update on what’s new in 2021/2022
This year we are planning to offer quite a bit of our risk education via face-to-face Conferences and Workshops again in addition to what is available on-line.

Here is a summary of what’s new:

Conferences – They’re back! 
A new plenary session topic, ‘Recent cases – a forensic examination’ is being developed for Conferences in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.  A range of topics will be available for you to choose from for the second session

Online and Face-to-Face Workshops  
In addition to online workshops we will be offering special events, comprising 2 face-to-face workshops on a Saturday morning, in Adelaide and Perth.

New Webinars 
These were so popular last year that we are developing 2 new topics for 2021/2022:

  • Chronic Pain Management
  • Doctors’ Health

More information will be available as we finalise our plans, so keep an eye on your inbox for all the details and links to book.

New online Modules  
Look out for our 2 new self-directed online learning modules!

You may recall that a year or so back our Conference plenary session looked at Medicare’s scrutiny of doctors’ billing practices.  There was so much information which raised a lot of questions, so we have brought this together as the basis of a new module.

Healthcare Errors
How do you contribute to less than optimal outcomes?  Can you recognise when the system that you are working in doesn’t have your best interests at heart?  Do you know how you might go about making some changes in that system?  Self-reflection on what we see, hear and do can be uncomfortable, but it can also make space for finding ways to make or enable change.

If you haven’t participated in risk education in the past, the 2021/22 year is the perfect time to start!

If we can help you in anyway with accessing REO or if you need to chat about Risk Education and your options, don’t hesitate to call or email us
