As a Healthcare professional you have a responsibility to provide care that complies with legal and ethical standards. To ensure that you and your teams understand your legal obligations and can provide safe and effective care to your patients, legal training is essential.

This training covers relevant legislation, such as the Medical Practitioners Act, the Data Protection Act, and the Mental Health Act, as well as important topics like consent, confidentiality, and reporting adverse events. By attending legal training, healthcare professionals can reduce their risk of legal and disciplinary action, as professional bodies have the power to investigate complaints and take disciplinary action against those who breach their obligations.

I found this course extremely beneficial.

I learned the difference between reports, statements, records and notes. The report template is very useful, plus being able to submit reports & statements for review by the trainer was great. Fantastic trainer.
