Apologies, medicine and the law.

Author information

  • Hornsby Brooklyn GP Unit.

Abstract

This column considers some of the imperatives and barriers which may impact on a medical practitioner who apologises to a patient following an adverse event in New South Wales. It also considers the inclusion of the apology provisions in ss 67-69 of the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) and the extent to which those provisions may protect apologising practitioners from liability.
