Risk Management Conferences

Our next round of 8 Conferences around Australia will commence with Adelaide 1 on 12 August 2017 and will kick off a new Hypothetical session:

Who dunnit? A poisonous pill

Our interactive Claims Hypothetical moderated by Professor Guy Maddern, with the support of an expert panel, will de-mystify a coronial inquest through a mock court scenario. Participants will have access to Coroners Court representatives, legal assistance and the views of the lawyer for the family of the deceased. Join us as we deconstruct the Coronial process and see how the elements come together when medicine and the legal process collide.
