The ethics of disclosing adverse events and errors in healthcare

How much do doctors know about how to observe, report and deal with adverse effects of medication administered to patients in practice? When you see medical errors being committed, how do you report them 'collegially' but ethically? In this webinar, medico-legal expert Dr Marietjie Botes will provide insights on navigating these tricky but essential parts of everyday clinical practice.
