Whether you are working within clinical negligence, personal injury or catastrophic injury, the upcoming webinars will provide an invaluable opportunity for lawyers, barristers, case managers, medico-legal experts, and clinical colleagues access to expand their knowledge and improve their practice in these critical and often misunderstood areas.
Hosted by Dr Edmund Bonikowski with special guests, registration is now open for the webinars, with each of the events providing support, guidance and discussion – essential additions to your professional development toolkit.
Medical Cannabis for Legal Teams, Clinicians & Case Managers
The series begins on 19 September 2023, and is led by Prof. Mike Barnes, a renowned neurologist and expert in medical cannabis. Chair of the Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society and leading expert witness, Prof Barnes is ideally placed to discuss this treatment option in the context of medico-legal cases.
The session promises to equip attendees with a comprehensive overview of the history, legal status, and medical applications of medical cannabis, particularly its implications for legal cases involving brain, spinal and neurological injuries.
The webinar will give attendees a well-rounded overview to aid in navigating the complex intersections of neuroscience, medicine, and law in relation to medical cannabis use and its implications for the courts.
Following the webinars, attendees can request a copy of the presentation, webinar recordings, and an attendance certificate to add to professional CPD logs.
Mental Capacity: Sexual Relations & Social Media
The second part of the series, on 17 October 2023, is a deep dive into mental capacity in relation to the subject of sexual relations and social media use, presented by Huw Ponting, a specialist in brain injuries at Foot Anstey & Enable Law.
Drawing on his experience of supporting clients throughout the medico-legal process, Huw will cover the intricacies of legal rights, ethical considerations, consent and practical implications surrounding sexual relations and social media use in the context of patients with brain injuries, with examples drawn from his extensive legal practice.
Co-hosted by Dr Edmund Bonikowski, founder of NRC Medical Experts, the webinar will offer an enlightening overview of legal rights, ethical considerations, and practical challenges in this sensitive area, with practical examples from Huw’s extensive legal practice.
