1.00pm - 1.30pm - Introduction with Maggie Poole

Maggie will talk briefly on the intersect of the law and social work. This year is the 10th anniversary of the service she manages in Qld; this provides context to the free legal education that Slater + Gordon provides to social workers across the country.

1.30pm - 2.30pm - Medical Law - Bill King, Principal Lawyer, Medical Law

Bill will provide an overview of this complex area of law. Social workers are often the first health professional a patient, or their family, will talk to when they are worried that something has gone wrong. This session explains what constitutes negligence, the evidence needed to successfully bring a medical
negligence claim, common reasons for actions as well as information on how to minimise risk of litigation.
