    Connect Issue 10

    Connect issue 10

    Our latest issue of Connect explores how the changing practice of medicine is affecting doctors. Increased scrutiny by employers, governments, health insurers and regulators has brought many doctors into the spotlight. Challenges to multi-disciplinary care, clinical handovers and other common causes of complaints are also covered. We bring you cases, insights and tips from Avant Law and our medical defence team on these topics. Also read perspectives from a regulator, physician and solicitor on the Dr Bawa-Garba case and what it means for practitioners in Australia.
