Medicolegal Pitfalls in a Skin Cancer Practice

This is a 40-minute webinar on common medicolegal pitfalls in skin cancer practice, particularly in the community in both GP and non-GP specialist setting. We will look into areas of most complaints and indemnity claims, as well as explore strategies to mitigate these risks. The discussion will include the standard of care expected in a skin cancer clinical practice and the practical aspects to meet these standards. This session will also include an overview on the Medicare item numbers used in skin cancer surgery, as misuse and Medicare audits are not uncommon in skin cancer practices. The webinar will allow 10-15 minutes for questions which can be asked anonymously.
