Webinar: Wednesday 13 July, 1300–1400

Online, with free registration in advance

The Royal College of Pathologists recently published the 6th instalment in its Good Practice series for medical examiners, which provides some guidance on how medical examiners should interact with the child death review process. In this free webinar run jointly by the Paediatric Critical Care Society and NCMD, a series of speakers will explore and expand on this guidance, giving practical advice to integrate the role of the medical examiner into the child death review process.

Chair of the Paediatric Critical Care Society Dr James Fraser will give an overview of the current guidance, including some background and context and highlighting the importance of clinicians forming relationships with medical examiners to support alignment of the two processes. Vicky Sleap, NCMD Programme Manager, will discuss how CDOPs fit into this process and how they can establish relationships with their medical examiners, and finally Dr Stephen Playfor, a Consultant in Paediatric Intensive Care and a Medical Examiner in Manchester, will take us through a vision of how this process might work in his area. There will also be time for questions at the end of the session, and you can also submit questions in advance by emailing NCMD-programme@bristol.ac.uk.

The session is free and open to all with free registration in advance. We also issue continuing professional development certificates following attendance, upon request – contact Charlotte McClymont at UCL Partners for more details.

Please note that the session will be recorded and shared by NCMD to support future learning.
