No sooner had I posted on laws on Friday, then Dr Grumble posted about legal matters on Saturday. Odd how themes pop up.
It got me thinking.
How much of my study time, over the last year, has been updates on clinical matters? Mostly I do this online and through journals, I used to do it through conferences a lot too. My external study leave (conferences, meetings, teaching away from the weekly local in-house stuff) on clinical material/updates was just 12% last year. Almost all my courses and training was legal.
The ammended Mental Health Act, the Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards have a lot to answer for.
