Need for Program

There are potential risks manifest in all areas of nursing care. Nurses have a legal and ethical duty surrounding and encompassing all that they do. Ignorance of this is not a defence. Despite this, every year nurses are involved in cases that invariably include a failure of duty of care at some level. There is a need for forums that enable nurses to debate and consider the implications of their legal responsibilities.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this seminar is to offer nurses a forum to debate and enhance their knowledge of modern law as it affects their practice.
