Dr Sharman has been invited to make a presentation to the Australian Lawyer’s Alliance National Conference to be held in Hobart from 22 to 24 October 2015. His topic will be ‘Medical Dispute Resolution – Where Are We Headed?’.
If you come into the practice shortly you will see a survey questionnaire exploring views about compensation systems, particularly problems with resolving disputes about medical issues. Dr Sharman plans to use that information in his presentation. The presentation will encompass issues with current compensation systems that are heavily reliant on use of opposing independent medical assessments to resolve issues using a primarily legal model.
Look out for the survey!
