ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE

Health follows a social gradient. A proven association between poverty, underfunded healthcare and an increase in prevalence of acute and chronic disease is exacerbated across sub-Saharan Africa by systemic and regulatory failures consistent with the most vulnerable communities around the world. The overall negative impact of these issues is observed in the quality and standards of accountability, patient safety and administration.

Keynote Speakers

Where Does this Course fit in?

The MAL 2019 Conference is designed to provide a greater understanding and appreciation of current law and practices in the following areas of interest:

  • Clinical performance, medical negligence and Gross Negligence Manslaughter (GNM)
  • Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), maternal surrogacy and in vitro fertilisation (IVF) – the science and ethics of making babies
  • Abortion law in Nigeria – jurisprudence, medico-legal and global context

The 2019 annual conference is made up of 2 distinct course components – Reproductive Health Masterclass (Day 1) and Medical Ethics and Law sessions (Days 2 & 3).

Learning Outcomes

The MAL 2019 Conference is designed to help delegates:

  • Understand the practitioner’s ‘duty of care’ and moral and ethical principles underpinning good medical practice.
  • Develop a framework of accountability based on effective models of professional regulation, clinical governance and evidence-based medical practice.
  • Explore basic principles and legal parameters necessary to constitute a charge of medical negligence, and in more extreme circumstances, gross negligence manslaughter (GNM).
  • Discuss the evolution and status quo of Abortion law in Nigeria and medico-legal implications in an evolving socio-cultural and global context.
  • Appreciate ethical arguments and existing laws governing the use of assisted reproductive technology (e.g. in vitro fertilisation (IVF)), maternal surrogacy and gestational carriers.
  • Identify gaps in existing law and explore opportunities for enhanced legislation, policy implementation and regulation in the above areas.
