Patient safety in low and middle income countries – ethics and the junior doctor’s responsibilities

  • Venue:  Royal College of Physicians, London NW1 4LE
  • Thursday 25th September, 6:30pm – 8pm followed by a drinks reception

This is the third in this year’s series of Global Health Advocacy seminars, held by the Royal College of Physicians and the Alma Mata Global Health Network.  If you missed the last one, you can watch it online here.

This seminar will explore ethical issues and challenging scenarios that doctors may encounter whilst working in low resource settings.  A panel of speakers will discuss their personal experiences, present ethical arguments, and review existing guidance to support doctors working abroad.  Join us for a lively and interactive Question Time-style debate, with opportunity for further discussion afterwards over a glass of wine.
