Learn the latest legal developments and know your obligations
A one-day conference
Royal Marine Hotel,
Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
Date: 17th September 2020
With a number of recent high-profile cases in the Irish healthcare sector this year, as well as recent important legislation changes, and the rise in the complexities of the cases coming through the legal system, all point to a potential legal crisis facing Irish healthcare. This conference will highlight the relevant case studies that can impact current and future legal outcomes, examine new changes to legislation, explore the minefield of legalities within Irish healthcare and with our expert speakers and panel, delegates get to ask relevant questions and discuss potential future outcomes.
5 Structured CPD Points
This conference is aimed at those executives and professionals at the forefront of healthcare in Ireland, from both the healthcare environment and legal community. The conference attracts these two powerful groups to explore and examine the current situation and future of medical negligence litigation.
