The Centre for Health Communication will present the 1st International Incident Disclosure Conference held at UTS 4-5 October 2012. National and international speakers will present their research on progress in policy and practice reform.
Incident disclosure is of critical significance to contemporary health care communication. Research has shown that disclosure may re-establish patients’ and relatives’ trust in the system, support clinical processes being made safer, and prevent organisations and individuals from entering into time-consuming complaints resolution and expensive legal processes.
Plenary speakers include:
- Professor Thomas Gallagher - Medicine, University of Washington
- Professor David Studdert - Law, University of Melbourne
- Professor Prue Vines - Law, University of New South Wales
Abstracts are invited for 20-minute papers to be given during the Conference’s parallel sessions.
- Due date for abstracts: 1 May 2012
- Notification of acceptance: 15 May 2012
