At one time or another most health care practitioners are faced with a legal and/or ethical problem that arises from their conduct in executing their duties in practice. This goes beyond the scope of the practitioner’s treatment of the patient. It may end up with a claim made against the health care practitioner with their conduct being assessed by a statutory body or the court. Had the various health care professional been aware of the obligations and limitations the law expects of them, the practitioner may have minimised the risk of being sued. The purpose of this course is to introduce health care professionals to the laws which are applicable to them and which affect their daily conduct in practice. Here, not only is the common law and statutory law relevant, but our Constitution also serves as a beacon to what is expected of professionals in the medical world.
