Description

Regardless of how competent you are, there is still a real possibility that one day a patient could blame you for their pain and suffering and want to take legal action against you. 

Dr Cam Wareham is known to many in Australia and the UK as a Consultant Podiatric Surgeon and Professor in Healthcare for the University of Sunderland. He previously was Head of School at the University of Western Australia. 

In addition to this, he has a Master of Law in Dispute Resolution and in this episode, we're going to dig into his knowledge in the area of medical-legal aspects of podiatry and what he does as a medical expert in legal cases. 

Topics of Discussion:

  • What is negligence and what is not?
  • Balance of probabilities.
  • Duty and standard of care. 
  • Some patients are more high-risk than others. 
  • The power of communication. 
  • Dispute Resolution and Arbitration.
  • Top Three Reasons Patients Sue:
    • They don't want what happened to them to happen to anyone else.
    • They want an apology and want to understand why it went wrong. 
    • Compensation. 

Dr Cam Wareham also explains two real-life examples. One is a patient with an ingrown toenail, and the other is a patient with heel pain.
