Discuss the dos and don’ts of practising safely

About us

Introduction

Got a burning medicolegal question? Get the answer here.

Long-term GP and medicolegal adviser Dr Craig Lilienthal will be on hand to help doctors unravel the dos and don’ts of practising safely and to discuss the finer points of medical law.

There will also be a weekly quiz to test your medicolegal knowledge.

AusDoc community managers will also share our popular medicolegal news and feature articles, as well as other relevant content from across the internet, to help you stay abreast of this important part of practice.

Rules

Part of AusDoc's mission to become a must-visit medical knowledge community is to encourage respectful debate and provide a platform for healthy discussion.

In a bid to ensure real-time responses, all posts and comments are published unmoderated, which means you can post and comment quickly as the conversation continues.

However, we will be post-moderating all posts and comments, and where they breach medical and media laws, we will remove them.

We also do not tolerate abuse, threats or promotion for commercial gain, and these types of posts will also be removed when we deem necessary.

As a general guide, posts and comments will be removed if they:

  • Breach patient privacy laws
  • Breach copyright laws
  • Are defamatory or inflammatory
  • Contain threats or personal attacks
  • Are inappropriate for a professional site
  • Are off topic
  • Include personal information such as addresses, phone numbers and emails

Posting anonymously does not protect you from liability for potential defamation. We also apply Godwin's law.

Please be kind to each other. There is enough misery in the world.
