The 1st International Incident Disclosure Conference
The 1st International Incident Disclosure Conference was hosted by the UTS Centre for Health Communication at UTS on October 4 and 5 2012.
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 included:
- Professor Thomas Gallagher | Medicine, University of Washington
- Professor David Studdert | Law, University of Melbourne
- Professor Prue Vines|Law, University of New South Wales
