"Risk, responsibility and resolution"

The demise of medical paternalism (doctor knows best) and the rise of patient autonomy presents us with new risks.
Risks which may come unexpected from consumer demands and expectations.
Recently judges, worldwide, have been more deferential to patient’s complaints rather than to realistic clinical explanations.
This has led to a redefining of the understanding of consent.
The lecture will examine some of these issues and consider how to avoid pitfalls and manage risk using examples from a dento/legal perspective.
