Genomic testing and medico-legal risk

Avant Mutual Genomic Testing Whitepaper

As genomic testing capabilities evolve, what was once a highly specialised area of practice is becoming part of mainstream medicine.

Avant Mutual had been reviewing medico-legal claims and cases and interviewing practitioners working in the field. They needed assistance turning their research into a paper on genomic testing that would outline medico-legal risks they had identified and articulate concerns they were hearing from the profession.

The paper is being used to stimulate discussion about what kinds of additional education, regulatory reform or policy development may be needed to encourage high quality healthcare and minimise medico-legal risk.

Disputes between trainee doctor and their medical colleges can be complex and difficult. Medical defence organisation Avant Mutual conducted a program of stakeholder research to help tease out the multiple contributing factors and explore options to help resolve or avoid these disputes.
