BMUS Medico-legal and insurance issues for Sonographers

23rd Mar 2019

'Are you covered?'

Potential litigation remains one of the greatest fears for most diagnostic sonographers and an apparent increase in the number of investigations has led to changes in the provision of Malpractice Insurance.   In an ever-changing world of healthcare provision, there appears to be ongoing confusion and uncertainty around the level and scope of protection required for sonographers, particularly those working in the independent sector.  This day aims to provide information, advice and support for sonographers working in all areas of healthcare. 

Other medico-legal topics such as the level and documentation around consent remain bewildering for many sonographers and the organisers of this day aim to help bring some clarity to such issues.

This course aims to:

  • Outline recent changes in Malpractice insurance and help delegates understand what is required
  • Present several real-life case studies where Sonographers have been involved in medicolegal issues
  • Discuss potential alignment of Sonographer scope of practice, education and insurance coverage: supporting the Sonography workforce
  • Discuss levels of patient consent and where they are appropriate
