Future Leaders Communiqué
Welcome to the January 2019 edition of the Future Leaders Communiqué. In this edition, we discuss the concept of ‘medical risk.’ An example of the many situations that arise in the healthcare system that create risk, and the challenges in managing that risk, is illustrated by the case summary presented here where a patient suffered an adverse reaction to intravenous contrast that sadly resulted in death.
The newsletter written by clinicians for clinicians about lessons learned from deaths investigated by the Coroners Court.
The final edition of the Clinical Communiqué for 2018 finished with a double edition, drawing attention to the important lessons covered through the year, and featuring three cases on the theme of doctor-patient communication. We wrap-up our extended edition with a special commentary by a renowned clinician and writer.
