AVANT MUTUAL Breakfast Master Class


Essential Medico-Legal Skills for Doctors

Presenter: Ms Selina Hunt - Avant Law

Managing patients who have had an adverse outcome, especially death following a medical procedure, is stressful and challenging. In addition to the medical management of the patient we need to be aware of potential medicolegal consequences. This talk will aim to address the following issues faced by doctors of all levels:

-           How to give evidence in a medico-legal case or a coroner’s court, either as an expert or as a witness?

-           How to document in tricky situations such as medical error causing severe harm and potentially resulting in legal action?

-           Providing a report to the Coroner or a statement to police.

-           How to keep a personal record of events in situations with medico-legal implications?

Tertiary PoCUS: Role in management of the Trauma patient

Presenter: Dr Kylie Baker

The primary survey of the trauma patient is a rapid clinical survey known by the mnemonic “A, B, C, D, E”. It is repeated regularly, when the patient is moved, or when vital signs worsen. It is useful because it focusses our attention, prioritises solutions, and reduces cognitive load during stress. As a protocol it is limited by insensitive examination skills and compounded by a noisy trauma scenario.

 

Point of care ultrasound can offer increased sensitivity over the clinical exam – and is repeatable, portable, measurable, comparable and auditable. Already the standard of care in many trauma interventions, it is well worth knowing how- and how not - to extend its use into monitoring of the unstable patient.

Using cases, this session shows how bedside ultrasound can be used in a rapid ‘A, B, C, D, E’ assessment to troubleshoot a lined and tubed patient, specifically considering pneumothorax, line and tube function, basic haemodynamic measures, GIT health and the ongoing controversy over IVC measurement.
