Avant offers a range of print and digital publications containing insights gained from our members’ experiences through Avant Law, our Medico-legal Advisory Service and claims team. Avant medical and legal experts provide key learnings to help you manage risk.
Avant's biannual member magazine, Connect, explores topics relevant to medical practitioners using insights from our claims managers, medical advisors and Avant Law solicitors.
In edition 14 of Connect magazine, our medico-legal specialists shine a light on COVID-19 and the ripple effects it has caused throughout the industry. Medical professionals and practices had to quickly upskill their knowledge of technology as they transitioned to telehealth and adapted to the rollout of electronic prescribing.
Articles in this issue look at what members have been seeking advice for throughout the pandemic, and we reflect on how this has affected the way doctors practise, their mental health and livelihood.
We also examine ethical dilemmas surfaced due to COVID-19, ongoing testing for the virus and how the landscape of healthcare may look like moving forward.
In the last year, the evolving landscape brought several changes to regulation, compliance and healthcare provision. We take a look at the key issues impacting doctors in 2019.
