Need for Program
There are potential risks that manifest in all areas of nursing care. Every year nurses are involved in cases that invariably include a failure of duty of care at some level. Nurses have a legal and ethical duty encompassing all that they do in order to protect the public from harm. Ignorance of the law is not a defence when something goes wrong. Therefore, knowledge of relevant laws across jurisdictions is of critical importance to all professionals and ultimately, their patients.
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
