Medico-Legal Society of Queensland Annual Conference
The Medico-Legal Society of Queensland Annual Conference will be held 18-19 August 2017, at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort. This year’s theme, When Yes Means No, focuses on the issue of consent to medical treatment. The complexities confronting medical practitioners, at risk of regulatory action or civil suit despite consent apparently being garnered from the patient, will be closely examined.
Our highly respected presenters will address the legal framework and methods and limitations of consent in various settings:
- experienced practitioner v junior doctor,
- mental health patients,
- vulnerable persons,
- complicated clinical settings,
- young people, and
- the elderly.
A stimulating exchange of knowledge and viewpoints is anticipated during the Q&A segments and final afternoon debate, Bring Back Paternalism: Informed consent is a sham. Emeritus Professor Roly Sussex OAM, well known to many as an inter-cultural linguist, will deliver the conference after-dinner address.
