Event Description

Medical Mediation attempts to resolve conflicts in the medical setting through the use of an impartial third party. This can involve health professionals and families who cannot agree on treatment options for family members.

It can also be used when there are other conflicts between health professionals and patients/families such as communication breakdown and end of life care. Medical Mediation is also effective in helping to resolve complaints about medical care or negligence.

As part of UK Mediation Awareness Week 2016, this event aims to inform people about the practices and potential of Medical Mediation in the UK. There is no cost to attend the event. Only 60 spaces available.

This event is part of UK Mediation Awareness Week 2016 and is being hosted by Buon Consultancy and the Medical Mediation Foundation.
