Joint Head of Kings View Chambers, Stephen McCaffrey, will deliver the keynote presentation at the CHARMS 2020 conference for MS nurses.
Stephen is a leading healthcare regulatory and defence barrister acting for a wide range of healthcare professionals facing fitness to practise issues.
On Saturday 8 February Stephen will deliver the keynote presentation on the “Medicolegal considerations for MS nurses”.
Stephen’s session will focus on:
- Highlighting the legal responsibilities of the MS Nurse – where do they stand?
- Exploring worked case examples to share best practice e.g. PIP application and appeals, working/employer ‘letters’, providing medical ‘evidence’ for claims, DVLA
- Understanding the “do’s and don’ts” in their clinic letter writing
- Exploring the legal implications of filling out PIP forms
The CHARMS Annual Conference is a Merck sponsored educational meeting, designed for UK and Ireland nurses involved in the management of people with MS, which is now approaching its 16th year. Over the last 15 years CHARMS has provided a platform for nurses to help share best practice, progress their individual development and provide plenty of opportunities to gain new learnings and insights over the course of each meeting.
The conference will take place at Park Plaza, 200 Westminster Bridge Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 7UT on Friday 7 & Saturday 8 February 2020.
Stephen’s invite to deliver the keynote presentation follows his nomination to also sit on the 2020 Lexis Nexis Legal Awards and invite to speak at the Royal College of Surgeons’ “Surgery and the Law Conference”.
