The RCPCH are pleased to be working with our partners at Bond Solon in offering this 1 day course. As part of their clinical practice, practitioners will be required to produce statements or reports that will later be scrutinised. They may be used internally for audit or responding to complaints and externally in tribunals, inquiries, regulatory proceedings or the courts. All too often, excellent clinical knowledge and skills are undermined when statements or reports fall below an acceptable standard.

This course explores what is required from statements and reports. Practitioners will identify the issues to be addressed and the relevant evidence to be included. They will use objective criteria to assess what has been written and receive feedback to help improve their skills.

Facilitator: Ms Francesca Burfield, Barrister
