Health Records on Trial -
Will your records stand up to scrutiny?
A one day course designed
by Andrew Andrews, a leading Health Services Lawyer with over 30 years
experience and Director of Bond Solonís medico legal group teaching the
essential skills for producing first class healthcare records - records
that stand up to scrutiny in the witness box.
professionals produce records in the course of their work. These records
may be used as evidence in legal cases. If they do not stand up to
scrutiny, the maker of the record and the employer can be in great
difficulty. Records will be reviewed in courts, at inquests, tribunals and
professional committees. All too often they fall short of required
professional and evidential standards.
The objective of the
training is to illustrate the importance of records in legal proceedings,
and how to keep them to the correct professional and evidential standards.
With strong, accurate records claims can be challenged effectively. If a
claim continues they will provide first class evidence in all legal fora
and the training will provide guidance on dealing with fierce
cross-examination and questioning. This training will have an impact on
clinical and non-clinical issues and is designed with a view to minimising
risk of exposure to claims.
Healthcare Records on Trial
will help you to produce professional records which will enhance your
credibility as a witness. The trainer will lead practical courtroom
exercises to show you how important good records are in the witness box.
The day includes lectures on good record keeping and accountability. There
are led discussions

presentation, practical exercises on producing records and then realistic
cross examination in the witness box on the records produced on the day.
