Law and Healthcare Professionals: Medical Tribunal Simulations
DATES: November, 2019 - March, 2020.
HOURS: Up to 16 hours (Law); Up to 16 hours (HELS)
The School of Law's Centre for Law, Science and Policy provides a platform for investigating law's relationship with other disciplines, including medicine, psychology, and healthcare. As part of an established stream of work in the Centre, this project provides students the opportunity to collaborate with academics from law, psychology, dietetics, physiotherapy, radiography, and operating department practice.
The cross-disciplinary team will work together to design 3 case studies and use those case studies to shape 3 medical tribunal simulations, as follows:
Case Study 1: Operating Practice
Case Study 2: Physiotherapy and Dietetics
Case Study 3: Radiography/Ultrasound
The resources produced will enable healthcare profession students to develop experiences of good and poor professional practice, problem-solve, and experience the legal frameworks within which their professions operate. Law students will gain experience in case file analysis, cross-disciplinary working, cross-examination planning, and advocacy. The over-arching aim of the project is to increase the legal literacy of healthcare professionals, and to increase the scientific literacy of legal professionals.
We are seeking 4 Student Partners as follows:
1 x Operating Practice Student
