Mr Miller Co-Chair of Medicolegal session BAPRAS Winter Scientific Meeting London

Following an invitation by the Programme Committee of the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons Mr Miller co-chaired the ‘Medicolegal Session’ at the BAPRAS Winter Scientific Meeting with BAPRAS president, Mr David Ward

The BAPRAS Winter Scientific Meeting took place at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London between 28th and 30th November 2018.

The session included thought-provoking presentations on ‘Forensic Plastic Surgery’, ‘The Surgeon as an Expert Witness’, ‘Medical Malpractice – the rising cost of claims – strategies to reduce risk, avoid harm and claims’, and ‘Watching the disclosure for consent evolve’. It finished with a lively 30 minute question-and-answer session.

The session was well received by the Plastic Surgery audience which included both consultants and trainees…

“Well done chairing your session... it was really great!!”

(Miss Mary O’Brien Consultant Plastic and Hand Surgeon)

Getting ideas across to other people isn't always easy, and with patients this can be quite challenging. Analogies can be helpful but sometimes we are left with a feeling that we have failed to get our message understood. Explanatory material may have assisted, but you did not have this at hand!
