Pulmonary embolism remains the leading cause of preventable in-hospital death. Thromboprophylaxis is the most important patient safety strategy in patients admitted to hospital.
As part of each speaker’s presentation on medico-legal issues in their field generally, we will also consider the use of thromboprophylaxis in patients within that specific practice area.
Chaired by Lauren Sutherland QC, this conference offers claimant and defendant lawyers the opportunity to learn from, and network with, leading consultants and medico-legal professionals.
