Mediating conflict in health and social care: opportunities for engagement and resolution
Manchester, M1 3AE
How is mediation being used to prevent and resolve conflicts in health and social care?
Should it be tried more often? In what sort of cases does it work?
Are there some situations which just aren't possible to mediate?
Jointly hosted by solicitors Hill Dickinson and The Medical Mediation Foundation, "Mediating conflict in health and social care: opportunities for engagement and resolution" brings together speakers with first-hand experience of managing and mediating conflict between patients, parents and family members to share their perspective on how mediation works to resolve disputes, with and without the need to involve the courts.
Sarah Barclay Director, The Medical Mediation Foundation
Rob Behrens Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman
Stephen Play for Consultant Paediatric Intensivist, Royal Manchester Children's Hospital
Georgina Rowley Medical lawyer and mediator
Presentations will be followed by questions and discussion.
