Medical clinics frequently grapple with a myriad of issues beyond their control. However, effective practice management processes and procedures can help to reduce civil and coronial claims and should be a paramount focus for owners and managers. By implementing a comprehensive risk management framework that identifies the risks and outlines how to mitigate them, costly mistakes that can lead to reputational damage, disciplinary action, insurance and professional negligence claims, loss of income, significant financial penalties or a coronial investigation can be avoided.

In this session, Joanne will share insights from her experience in civil claims and coronial inquests to emphasise the importance of well-established guidelines in reducing the likelihood of costly mistakes, particularly in situations where patients may interact with multiple GPs within a single clinic.

Joanne will cover the following key topics:

  • Why you need to consider risk management
  • The common risks in private practice
  • Who is responsible for managing the risks
  • The risk management process and steps you can take to reduce risk

Practice owners and managers who want to ensure they’re following best practice guidelines to protect their clinics and enhance patient care should attend this session.
